de la revue :
Recherche en Didactique des Mathématiques is an international journal of high-level research. Manuscripts submitted must therefore meet standards of unquestionable scientific quality. The introduction should enable the reader to understand the article’s purpose, the problematic and theoretical frameworks should be precisely worked out and the methodology and results clearly expressed, and the conclusions should make it possible for readers to simultaneously understand the results the authors claim to have established and the directions of work they intend to pursue. The journal can accept articles that put more weight on one part or another (theory, methodology, experimental results, or observations).
The journal does not specify an a priori length for articles ; consequently, one can submit a rather long manuscript if the problematic and results require it. Authors should not hesitate, however, to propose a short text on a specific but important point. In the preliminary editorial process in which we engage strongly with authors, we consider it important to explore the adequacy of the article’s length for the purpose of the text.
SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTS
Manuscripts submitted for publication in Recherches en Didactique des Mathématiques should be sent :
1) Online : http://ardm.asso.fr/ojs/index.php/RDM
1) By email, in the.doc (.docx, .odt or .rtf) format and pdf format to email@example.com
2) By post, as a single hard copy, to :
Aline Robert, Laboratoire André Revuz, Université Paris 7, Case 7018, 2 place Jussieu, 75251 Paris Cedex 05, France.
The manuscript, in French, English, or Spanish, must include a title ; the names, professional affiliations, and e-mail addresses of the authors ; and an abstract in the language of the article. It is unnecessary to include abstracts in the three languages and key words before the manuscript is accepted.
The submitted text is first examined by the editors, who may decide to return a manuscript judged insufficient in form or inappropriate for the journal. Otherwise, the manuscript, anonymously, is sent to two or three reviewers. Authors are regularly informed by the editors of the status of their manuscript (received, read by the editors, sent out to the reviewers, reviews received, final decision made) ; the complete process takes approximately three months, and six months at the most. If the manuscript is not accepted as is but the authors are asked for a more or less major revision, a six-month deadline is set for that revision beyond which the manuscript will be treated as a new submission to the journal. When the second version of a manuscript is received within the revision period, the revised text is sent, along with the file for the former manuscript, to one or two reviewers who are asked, within two months, to evaluate how well the modifications conform to those requested by the reviewers of the first version. If the second version receives a negative evaluation, it is possible to propose a third and ultimate version that will again be examined within three months. In the event of yet another negative evaluation, that is final. If the manuscript is accepted for publication, instructions concerning the form of the final version will be transmitted to the author.
For instructions concerning the format of your manuscript, we refer you to the documents “Instructions for Authors.doc” (or Instructions for Authors.docx) and “TemplateRDM.doc” (or TemplateRDM.docx) on line at the journal’s Web site or sent to you by request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your careful attention to these items.
