Aims & Scope
Bετα: Jurnal Tadris Matematika (Bετα Journal for Mathematics Learning, p-ISSN:2085-5893 e-ISSN: 2541-0458) is scientific, peer-reviewed and open access journal published by Universitas Islam Negeri (UIN) Mataram in collaboration with Asosiasi Dosen Matematika dan Pendidikan Matematika PTKIN (Ad-Mapeta) half-yearly on May and November. It aims to be open access journal platform which publishes and disseminates the ideas and researches on mathematics learning*. Its focus is to publish original research (qualitative research, classroom action research, development/design research are top priorities) and/or library analysis on how students learn mathematics and how mathematics is taught in primary, secondary or undergraduate level.
To maintain the focus, the scope of the published articles will be as follows:
1. Developing mathematics learning integrated with values or character
This scope deals with researches to explore mathematics learning from effective if we refer to the view of Markku. S. Hannula or socio-cultural perspective from the works of Alan J. Bishop and Third Wave Project.
2. Developing mathematics learning based on the constructivist perspective
Learning mathematics is not the transfer of knowledge but the construction of knowledge. This scope refers to researches on the teachers' effort from primary until undergraduate to support and enhance students' roles and engagement in constructing mathematics knowledge and skills. It is not only about the achievement of students but also the process of learning which develop problem-solving, reasoning and proof, representations, connections, communications, and high order thinking.
3. The development of technological-based mathematics learning tools and its use in the mathematics classroom
The product of technology can be employed to support mathematics learning. Thus, researches on the development of mathematics learning tools using technology especially digital technology and its practices in mathematics classrooms are the important part of journal scopes.
4. The development of pedagogical content knowledge for in-service and prospective mathematics teachers
One of mathematics education research focuses nowadays is prospective mathematics teachers. This scope includes all attempts to prepare and support prospective mathematics teachers on pedagogical content knowledge.
*The term 'mathematics learning' involves both teaching and learning of mathematics

Bετα: Jurnal Tadris Matematika was firstly published as printing version in 2008. Its initial scope was mathematics and mathematics education. In 2016, it shifted to mathematics education (See Aims & Scope) and the online version was available at http://ejurnal.iainmataram.ac.id/index.php/beta. When the journal started its online journey, one of the challenges is to bring the past issues online. However, some early articles (Vol.1-Vol. 3 No.1) could not be found for technical reasons.
Articles in Vol.9 No.1 Mei 2016 were processed (submitted, reviewed, copyedited, layout, proofread and published) through OJS workflow. Due to the technical errors of OJS installation which hamper the editorial process and open access, we decided to migrate the journal website to the newer version of OJS (OJS 2.x.x to OJS 3.x.x) and deleted the old website. This migration had some consequences regarding the article metadata and editorial history since the code and database structure of OJS 2.x.x is rather different with OJS 3.x.x. For example, the articles in Vol.9 No.1 Mei 2016 were published in May 2016 then migrated to the new journal website (http://jurnalbeta.ac.id) in October 2016 using Quick Plugin Submit. In this case, the editorial histories especially published dates follow the current submission. There is also a change on article template starting from Vol. 9 No.1 Mei 2016. The previous template is considered 'crowded' in header and footer.
