Objective
Software Engineering discipline aims to deliver high quality software within budgets and time. The software had its utility in variety of sectors owing to the dependencies on software used for automation. Improving the quality of the software and optimising the project delivery parameters is possible by improving the Software Engineering Practices. Such an improvement calls for papers that are based on empirical work or proposed new validated methods of carrying software engineering activity. The development of open source software provides many challenges that are specific to it. The research could be carried out on variety of software’s with open source software providing an upper edge to researchers as it provides wide range of datasets easily. This special issue invites original submissions that present innovative methods, tools and techniques that result in improvements in SE practices for generic software in general and open source software’s in particular. Under this category of research, the proposals in form of methods, tools and techniques should be based on datasets of open source software. However, the submissions specially targeting the open source software’s are also welcome. Papers reporting the experiences, transitions from different practices, are also welcome.

Recommended Topics
  • New modelling techniques
  • Requirements engineering
  • Software testing
  • Software maintenance
  • Programming/coding practices
  • Decision making in software development
  • Model-driven development and testing
  • Regression testing of software applications
  • Agile/iterative/incremental software testing
  • Software testing with open source tools and third party software
  • Case studies and surveys of software development and practices
  • Global software development.
  • Requirement engineering aspects related to testing
  • Automated learning of test models
  • Testing of timed and randomised models
  • Formal methods for testing
  • Empirical Validations and negatives about existing research supported by empirical data.


Submission Procedure
Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. In case submitted paper is extension of earlier published paper, taking the permissions from any copyright holders of the original paper lies with the authors. Such paper must have at least 50% additional research content. Please follow the detailed notes to authors on journal home page (http://www.igi-global.com/journal/international-journal-open-source-software/1123). All manuscripts should be submitted via the journal submission system, E-Editorial Discovery, by no later than March, 02, 2017 here: http://www.igi-global.com/submission/submit-manuscript/
