Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education (IndoMS-JME)

Published two times a year: January and July


  • Articles written in IndoMS-JME cover all of the thinking or research findings in the field of mathematics education which have not been published yet in the other media. Authors are suggested to send their articles in the PDF or Word form. All of the articles will be reviewed and if necessary, the authors will be asked to revise based upon the editor’s work. Editor Board have their right only to make simple correction relating to the words.

  • The rules of research-based articles are: title (maximum 10 words); author’s name (without academic degree); abstract (maximum 150 words) consists of goals, method, and research finding; key words (3-5 phrases); introduction (without subtitle) consists of background, a little bit about references, and goals of research; method; results and discussion; conclusion and suggestion; references (only type the sources that have been taken into the articles).
  • The manuscripts written in Times new Roman font, font size 11, with 1,5 lines spacing (single line spacing in abstract), written at A4 paper size with maximum 10 – 15 pages. The files written and save in Microsoft Word. The files can be sent as an attachment of e-mail to these addresses: or
