Information Systems, Computer Studies & Tux

Nykvist, Shaun S. (2002) Information Systems, Computer Studies & Tux. QUICK, pp. 10-14.


This article looks at an alternative way of teaching information systems with the availability of free software. It also looks at how students studying Information Processing and Technology (IPT), Information Technology Systems (ITS) and/or Computer Studies can work together collaboratively. Particular attention will be given to that of information systems (a component of IPT) and network administration (a component of ITS). While this is intended to be a brief document in setting up a project for IPT and ITS students, some background to information systems is also given.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
