This special issue of the Journal of Systems and Software targets at high quality original publications that have not been previously published and are also not under consideration for publication elsewhere. We particularly encourage submissions of extended full research papers accepted for the EASE conference (where at least 30% is original research, not previously published elsewhere).

The areas within Empirical Software Engineering that are target of this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • New ideas pertaining to empirical evaluation of software engineering technologies, methods, and tools, e.g., transferring and applying empirical methods from other disciplines to empirical software engineering
  • Infrastructures and novel techniques/tools for supporting any phase of empirical studies
  • Empirical studies using qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods
  • Cross- and multi-disciplinary methods and studies
  • Experiments and quasi-experiments
  • Case studies, action-research, and field studies
  • Survey research
  • Systematic literature reviews and mapping studies
  • Meta-analysis, qualitative and quantitative synthesis of studies
  • Replication of empirical studies and families of studies
  • Empirically-based decision making
  • Evaluation and comparison of techniques and models
  • Development and evaluation of empirical prediction systems or software estimation models
  • Mining software engineering repositories
  • Modelling, measuring, and assessing product and/or process quality
  • Simulation-based studies in software engineering
  • Assessing the benefits / costs associated with using certain development technologies
  • Industrial experience, Software project experience, and knowledge management
  • Software technology transfer to the industry

Submitted papers must be written in English, and must conform to the Journal’s authoring guidelines (www.elsevier.com/journals/journal-of-systems-and-software/0164-1212/guide-for-authors). Furthermore, papers must be submitted through the web-based submission system (https://ees.elsevier.com/jss/default.asp).

Each paper will be reviewed by at least three reviewers.

Deadline for submission: 30th September 2017.

We aim to tentatively publish this special issue by July 2018.
