Call for Papers

Principles and Practices of Software Engineering

Special Issue of International Journal of Software Engineering (IJSE)




The ever-shifting organizational needs, as well as the volatile markets within which we operate, present various technological challenges. We require appropriate technologies that increase efficiency in production and revenue. Consequently, engineering such systems is critical for ensuring that organizations receive value from such initiatives. The field of Software Engineering provides the appropriate engineering principles and practices upon which the development of such technologies hinges. Despite the various research efforts already shown in this area, many challenges still remain. Research in principles and practice of software engineering spans various dimensions. Software engineering is a creative design activity which must be practiced systematically. New techniques have to be devised, while existing techniques must be tested in a range of environments to determine whether and how they are useful and relevant. This special issue aims at reporting research, innovative techniques, and practical works conducted in the area of software engineering. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


-    Development practices and approaches

-    Software Development Tools and Infrastructure

-    Software Project Management

-    Software Process

-    Requirements Engineering

-    Software Architectures & Design

-    Software Security

-    Testing & Quality assurance

-    Software Economics

-    Software Measurement

-    Validation and Verification
