Welcome to Journal of Software

Journal of Software

Journal of Software (JSW, ISSN 1796-217X) is a scholarly peer-reviewed international scientific journal focusing on theories, methods, and applications in software. It provides a high profile, leading edge forum for academic researchers, industrial professionals, engineers, consultants, managers, educators and policy makers working in the field to contribute and disseminate innovative new work on software. We are interested in well-defined theoretical results and empirical studies that have a potential impact on the construction, analysis, or management of software. The scope of this Journal ranges from the mechanisms through the development of principles to the application of those principles to specific environments. JSW invites original, previously unpublished, research, survey and tutorial papers, plus case studies and short research notes, on both applied and theoretical aspects of software.

In line with growing awareness of the need for systems to adapt quickly to change, there has been increasing interest in the evolution of software systems. Research has particularly considered developer-led activities change over time. Comparatively less consideration has been given to the study of software evolution as driven by the wider community of stakeholders. Although, a project’s wider community is central to the feedback system and project success. We have contributed to such efforts and studied the evolution of architecture issues . .......
