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

» Section Policies

The published articles are open submission, indexed and peer-reviewed

» Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge

» Plagiarism Check

The editor will run a plagiarism check using Plagiarism Checker X for the submitted articles before sending to the reviewers. We do not process any plagiarised contents. If an article has over 20% of plagiarism based on the result of the check, we will send back the article to the author to be revised for the plagiarised contents

» Peer Review Process

Every submitted article is independently reviewed by at least two peer-reviewers. The decision for publication, amendment, or rejection is based upon their reports/recommendation.  After being reviewed, there will be four kinds of editor decision based on reviewers’ recommendation:

  1. Accept Submission: The submission will be accepted without revisions.
  2. Revisions Required: The submission will be accepted after minor changes have been made.
  3. Resubmit for Review: The submission needs to be re-worked, but with significant changes, may be accepted. It will require a second round of review, however.
  4. Decline Submission: The submission will not be published in the journal.

» Article Revision

The articles sent back to the authors for revision should be returned to the editor without delay. The revised article returned later than 20 days will be considered as new submissions. The revised article can be sent to editorial through the Online Submission Interface

» Article Submission and Processing Charges (APCs) 

We have been receiving a lot of submitted articles to be reviewed and edited. In this case, we need more resources (editors, peer-reviewers, web maintenance, XML galley editors, etc) to work better, effective, and efficient. In another case, we do not have 'strong' funding support. For the reasons, we hardly charge authors IDR 1.000.000 for one accepted article. The payment method will be informed by the editors after the publication.
» Withdrawal of Articles

The authors are not allowed to withdraw submitted articles in the process of reviewing, because the withdrawal is waste of valuable resources that editors and reviewers spent a great deal of time processing submitted articles. The withdrawal can be direct requests or without confirmation in which the authors do not send their revised articles. For this circumstance, they will be punished with paying IDR 500.000 per manuscript. However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if accepted by another journal. The withdrawal of articles after they are accepted for publication, the author will be punished by paying IDR 750.000 per manuscript. Withdrawal of article is only allowed after withdrawal penalty has been fully paid to the Publisher. If the authors don't agree to pay the penalty, the authors and his/her affiliation will be blacklisted for publication in this journal. Even, his/her previously published articles will be removed from our journal.

Journal History

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 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 ( 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.
