Behind the Door: A Critical Look at the Process of Publication in "Educational Studies in Mathematics"
Mesa, Vilma; Wagner, David
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v101 n3 p301-324 Jul 2019
To commemorate the 100th volume of "Educational Studies in Mathematics" (ESM) we invited all past and current editors to reflect on the journal's trends and internal processes. We complemented these discussions with comparisons of submitted and published manuscripts by countries of submitting authors. We found disparities in representation of articles from different countries and various attempts editors use to address such disparities. The analysis of internal editorial processes illustrates how editorial autonomy is exerted and raises questions about the necessity for higher editorial accountability, while maintaining the necessity of independent scientific judgment. We close the article with an open invitation to take up important questions about publication processes and their connection to the scholarship that is valued.
