Numeracy (ISSN 1936-4660) is the open-access, peer-reviewed, electronic journal of the National Numeracy Network (NNN). Numeracy supports education at all levels that integrates quantitative skills across disciplines. This journal is supported by the University of South Florida Libraries.

The graphic above is “Wave of Numbers” by Beth Fratesi, c2007, inspired by “a world awash in numbers,” Mathematics and Democracy: The Case for Quantitative Literacy (NCED, 2001).

In 2015, Numeracy was awarded the DOAJ Seal for its high degree of openness and for adhering to best practices and high publishing standards.

Numeracy has been accepted for inclusion in Scopus by the Content Selection & Advisory Board (CSAB) and will soon be indexed by the Scopus Journal Metrics.
