Author Guidelines

Manuscripts should be double-spaced with one-inch margins, 11 point Times New Roman font, and a maximum of 8 pages. Please use APA style in your submission, citing sources with appropriate information such as author, journal or book title, publisher, date, and pages. Original figures, tables, and graphs should appear embedded in the document. Please do not use text boxes, footnotes, or head-notes.


No cover sheet is needed. Authors enter their name, work address, telephone number, fax, and email address as part of the registration process. No author identification should appear on the manuscript itself or in the document’s metadata. The editors of the Ohio Journal of School Mathematics use a blind review process.
