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 JSW invites original, previously unpublished, research, survey and tutorial papers, plus case studies and short research notes, on both applied and theoretical aspects of software.
