Cutter IT Journal (CITJ) (formerly American Programmer) is an independent magazine for programmers and software technologists.[1] The magazine was founded in the 1990s, and published by Edward Yourdon, inventor of the Yourdon Method of structured systems analysis and design methodology (SSADM) and the Coad/Yourdon Object-Oriented Analysis Methodology.

In the early '90s, Cutter Information Corp. (now Cutter Consortium) partnered with Ed Yourdon to publish American Programmer, which was later renamed Cutter IT Journal.

Cutter IT Journal differs from academic journals in that it does not use a peer review process. Each month, CITJ's guest editor commissions articles by IT practitioners that include case studies, research findings, and experience-based opinion on IT topics of relevance to business.
