Focus and Scope

JPMP (Jurnal Pendidikan MIPA Pancasakti) was founded in 2017 and published qualitative and or quantitative research concerning mathematics and science teaching. JPMP is published by Faculty of Teacher Training and Education Universitas Pancasakti Tegal (UPS Tegal) Indonesia, twice a year in Januari and Juli. We aspire to become a journal which contributes to math and science teaching improvement by spreading knowledge that all stakeholder engaged in mathematics and science teaching can be able to benefit from.

In addition to original articles, the journal features the following special sections:

  • Learning : consisting of theoretical and empirical research studies on learning of mathematic and science. We invite manuscripts that investigate learning and its change and growth from various lenses, including psychological, social, cognitive, sociohistorical, and affective. Studies examining the relationship of learning to teaching, the science knowledge and practices, the learners themselves, and the contexts (social, political, physical, ideological, institutional, epistemological, and cultural) are similarly welcome.

  • Issues and Trends : consisting primarily of analytical, interpretive, or persuasive essays on current educational, social, or philosophical issues and trends relevant to the teaching of mathematic and science. This special section particularly seeks to promote informed dialogues about current issues in mathematic and science education, and carefully reasoned papers representing disparate viewpoints are welcomed. Manuscripts submitted for this section may be in the form of a position paper, a polemical piece, or a creative commentary.

  • Science Learning in Everyday Life : consisting of analytical, interpretative, or philosophical papers regarding learning science outside of the formal classroom. Papers should investigate experiences in settings such as community, home, the Internet, after school settings, museums, and other opportunities that develop science interest, knowledge or practices across the life span. Attention to issues and factors relating to equity in science learning are especially encouraged..

  • Mathematic and Science Teacher Education : consisting of original empirical and/or theoretical research that examines the preparation of teachers, the work of teachers, or how teachers' work is influenced by a broader context. "Teacher education" refers to development throughout the continuum of one’s teaching career, from pre-service, through induction, into advanced professional stages of teaching.

  • Mathematic and Science Education Policy : including reports about the goals and/or underlying principles of policies adopted by government, interest groups, school districts, etc., and their effect on science teaching and learning. Additionally, research on science education policy relates to a critical examination of how theory, research, and practice of mathematic and science education are influenced by policy decisions.

  • Science Studies and Science Education : provides a forum for interdisciplinary investigations into science and science education. It informs and derives perspectives from history, philosophy, anthropology, and sociology of science as well as cognitive psychology and artificial intelligence to contribute to the theory, methodology, policy, and practice of science education.
