About JOMA


The Journal of Online Mathematics and its Applications (JOMA) is a publication of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). JOMA is the journal of the Mathematical Sciences Digital Library (MathDL), for which MAA has received funding by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The ISSN is 1935-6439.

All articles and other materials submitted to JOMA are peer-reviewed. JOMA publishes continuously as accepted materials are ready to be posted. Each volume (after Volume 1) represents a calendar year without subdivision into issues.

JOMA takes advantage of the World Wide Web as a publication medium for materials containing dynamic, full-color graphics; internal and external hyperlinks to related resources; applets in Java, Flash, Shockwave, or other languages; MathML, SVG, and other XML markups; audio and video clips; and other Web-based features.

The sections of JOMA are

  • Articles
    • expository articles in all areas of mathematics, with particular emphasis on the appropriate use of web technologies.
    • original research articles on student learning via online materials and other technology-rich environments
    • significant new ideas for designing and using Web-based materials in teaching, learning, and assessing mathematics
    • authors' experiences teaching with Web-based materials
    • other articles on related subjects, with particular emphasis on use of applications for teaching and learning
  • Modules
    • innovative, class-tested, web-based learning materials that can be used for guided explorations of particular topics in mathematics
  • Mathlets
    • high-quality, self-contained, dynamic, single-purpose learning tools
  • Reviews
    • surveys and reviews of important online resources
  • Developers' Area
    • articles on the process of designing and developing online materials

"Enhanced" versions of articles that have appeared in print will be considered for republication, provided

  • significant value is added by use of web-based features, and
  • permission is obtained from the copyright holder.

You may submit an article or other material to JOMA, ask questions, or volunteer to referee submitted materials by contacting the Editor:

  • Kyle Siegrist
  • Department of Mathematical Sciences
  • University of Alabama in Huntsville
  • Huntsville, AL 35899, USA

The Editorial Board of JOMA is listed on line -- see the link at the left.

JOMA welcomes contributors, referees, and readers from all countries. Both mathematics and education are international concerns and endeavors. Neither the Mathematical Association of America nor the National Science Foundation limits JOMA in any way to national interests.
