The Finnish Mathematics and Science Education Research Association (FMSERA) was formed at the national symposium on Research in Mathematics Education held in Turku, in August 1983. Correspondingly, first national symposium on Research in Science Education was organised in Oulu, in November 1984. First common symposium in the field of science and mathematics education research was organised in Jyväskylä in September 1987. Thereafter, annual symposiums have been organised together with researchers with interest in science or mathematics education research.
The aims of FMSERA are to promote collaboration between mathematics and science education researchers in Finland as well as to strengthen links between researchers in Europe and similar communities elsewhere in the world and, furthermore, to support researchers to publish scientific journal articles. FMSERA provides a forum for discussion about the practices and policies of mathematics and science education research and to relate research to the policy and practice of science education.
The presenters of annual symposium are invited to submit a manuscript based on their presentation to be published in the annual proceedings. All manuscripts are double-blind peer-reviewed. The published articles are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
