Abstract

This paper looks at the origins of the international journal Educational Studies in Mathematics (ESM) in 1968 and traces its later development as it responded to changes in mathematics education. The paper first examines in chronological order the contributions of its editors in defining its spirit policy and procedures as they directed its growth and its transformation into a leading journal of research in mathematics education. The paper then presents a statistical profile of ESM articles by content area educational issue level of schooling and research method and goes on to look more closely at the special issues of ESM each dedicated to a single topic and how they reflect the changing concerns of mathematics educators.
