NOMAD is a journal for research and developmental work in mathematics education. It adresses all who are interested in following the progress of this field in the Nordic countries, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
The most important aim of the journal is to stimulate, support and foster Nordic reasearchers and post-graduate students in mathematics education and to develop mathematics teaching and teacher-education in theory and practise at all levels of the educational system. We hope that Nomad will promote Nordic studies in mathematics education and spread their results both inside and outside the Nordic countries.
The responsibility for the operative editorship have rotated among the Nordic countries. During the first four years, 1993–1996, NOMAD was edited and published by the Department of Didactics at Göteborg University, Sweden. The following four Volumes were edited by three institutions in Norway; Telemarksforsking in Notodden, Telemark University College and Institutt for lærerutdanning og skoleutvikling at Oslo University. The editing of Volumes 9–10 was done at Åbo Akademi in Vasa, Finland. For Volume 11–13 the editorship was placed in Denmark, at the Universities of Roskilde and Aalborg. In 2009 the policy of having a rotating editorship was abandoned. The present policy is to have an editorial team of a least four persons representing Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
The editorial committee strives to attain good contacts with the readers. The editors welcome articles about reports and surveys of research and development works, discussions of basic questions in mathematics education, theoretical analyses and empirical studies.
We also welcome brief reports of research, research literature, and conferences, critiques of articles and book reviews.
