New JRPIT Editor Needed

The Journal of Research and Practice in Information Technology (JRPIT) is seeking a new Editor-in-Chief. JRPIT is peer reviewed journal covering innovative research and practice in Information Technology which has been published by the Australian Computer Society continuously since 1967.

The current Editor-in-Chief is planning to step down within a year and is seeking expressions of interest from suitable persons. The appointment is made by the ACS on the recommendation of the current editor. The appointee can become an Associate Editor for a time, to enable a smooth transition.


The Journal has a dual emphasis and contains articles that are of interest both to practising information technology professionals and to university and industry researchers. In particular, it encourages papers that report on activities that have successfully connected fundamental and applied research with practical application. The journal thus publishes papers relating to both emerging research and to professional practice.

JRPIT encourages submission of innovative and original articles in all areas of Information Technology including Computer Science, Software Engineering, Information Systems, Computer Systems and Information Engineering and Telecommunications. Until 2000 it was titled the Australian Computer Journal, and is now published both on paper and online.

About the Editor

There are no formal requirements for this honorary position, but it is expected applicants would have a substantial journal publication record and be a senior academic/researcher in ICT. Those interested can discuss the role with Professor Sidney Morris, after 23 October 2008.
