# The De Morgan Gazette

ISSN 2053-1451

**The De Morgan Gazette **is a part of a wider online forum and blog on mathematics education. It was previously published under the name of *The De Morgan Journal* and had ISSN 2049-6559.

The aims of *The Morgan Gazette* are

- to encourage academic mathematicians to reflect on current issues in education,
- to encourage them to explore the links between higher mathematics and elementary mathematics,
- to examine policy implications which could be important for the wider mathematical/ educational/scientific community.

The editorial process is simplified and light touch and is concerned mostly with general readability and decent (non-managerialist!) style. However all papers are open for post-publication discussion, comments and review in the associated Blog (and comments are warmly welcome); in that sense, all contributions and papers will be post-reviewed.
