In this paper we prove the following result: let $m,n\geq 1$ be distinct integers, let $R$ be an $mn(m+n)|m-n|$ -torsion free semiprime ring and let $D:R\rightarrow R$ be an $(m,n)$ -Jordan derivation, that is an additive mapping satisfying the relation $(m+n)D(x^{2})=2mD(x)x+2nxD(x)$ for $x\in R$ . Then $D$ is a derivation which maps $R$ into its centre.
