The Jordanian Journal of Computers and Information Technology (JJCIT), which is based at Princess Sumaya University for Technology, rose from ranking 231 to 127, according to the new classification issued by Scopus, which is concerned with indexing international journals specialized in the field of computer and information technology. This ranking saw the journal rise from the Q4 category to the upper limit of the Q3 category, drawing close to the Q2 Category, and into the top 45th percentile.

The journal, which has been issued with the support of the Scientific Research Fund of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research since 2016, specializes in publishing high-level original research papers in all aspects and techniques related to the fields of computer technology, engineering, communications and IT.

PSUT’s Vice President for Academic Affairs, Prof. Dr. Wejdan Abu Al-Haija, has been editor-in-chief of the journal since last February, when she succeeded Prof. Ahmad Hiasat. The journal is currently being evaluated by Clarivate Analytics in preparation for its adoption into its worldwide classifications.
