Journal of Urban Mathematics Education ... Celebrating 5 Years of
Knowledge Dissemination

The current issue of JUME (Vol. 5, No. 2) marks its fifth year in
knowledge dissemination. We, the Editorial Team, wish to THANK our
readers, reviewers, and authors for their con-tinued support! And we
encourage each of you to "spread the word"!

Through five volumes, JUME has published over 1,000 online pages of
peer-reviewed, scholarly contribution for the mathematics education
and, more generally, the urban educa-tion communities. Nearly 700
pages of JUME content have been double blind, peer-reviewed research
articles; the 5-year acceptance rate for the RESEARCH ARTICLES
section has been approximately 33%. The open, peer-reviewed
sections-COMMENTARY, RE-SPONSE COMMENTARY, PUBLIC STORIES OF
MATHEMATICS EDUCATORS, and BOOK REVIEW-have totaled nearly 300 pages
of scholarly essays and reviews.

The growth in the number of web downloads of JUME content has been
tremendous; current downloads (as of April 2013) has exceeded 75,000
downloads! A Google search for the phrase "Journal of Urban
Mathematics Education" returns over 24,000 hits.

All JUME content is available online at NO COST to users! There are
nearly 1,400 regis-tered Readers of JUME, including over 200
registered Reviewers and nearly 300 registered Authors. (Access to
JUME content DOES NOT require registration; however, we encourage our
users to do so.)

To learn more about the origin, mission, and vision of JUME see Lou
Matthew's inaugural editorial, "Illuminating Urban Excellence: A
Movement of Change Within Mathematics Ed-ucation," William Tate's
inaugural commentary, "Putting the 'Urban' in Mathematics Educa-tion
Scholarship," and David Stinson's editorial, "How Is It That One
Particular Statement Appeared Rather Than Another: Opening a
Different Space for Different Statements About Urban Mathematics
Education." To learn more about JUME in general, see "ABOUT" on the
JUME website.

The forthcoming Spring/Summer 2013 JUME issue is a special issue,
containing contribu-tions from participants of the October 2012
Privilege and Oppression in the Mathematics Preparation of Teacher
Educators conference held in Battle Creek, Michigan. (PrOMPTE was
hosted by teacher educators from Michigan State University and funded
by the Lappan-Phillips-Fitzgerald Endowment.) Manuscripts submitted
online on or before June 1, 2013 will be considered for the
Fall/Winter 2013 JUME issue.

Again, Thank You! With your enduring support, JUME will continue to
provide a different space for different statements about urban
mathematics education for the years to come!
