The Journal of Applied Computing and Information Technology (JACIT) is an open-access online journal with a focus on new and emerging research related to applied computing and information technology. The Journal is primarily designed as a vehicle to publish Applied Computing papers principally from New Zealand, but international papers are considered that would be of interest to our readers, particularly if they relate to education or cite New Zealand based research or researchers. The Journal contains a range of articles - double blind peer-reviewed papers, invited papers, views, opinions, reports, book reviews. It is published by the Computing and Information Technology Research and Education, New Zealand (CITRENZ); its target audience includes academics, students and industry practitioners - based primarily (but not exclusively) in New Zealand, and working in the areas of computing, information technology and information systems.
