We present the vision that for all fields of software engineering (SE), empirical research methods should enable the development of scientific knowledge about how useful different SE technologies are for different kinds of actors, performing different kinds of activities, on different kinds of systems. The popularity of empirical methods in software engineering research is on the rise. Surveys, experiments, metrics, case studies, and field studies are examples of empirical methods used to investigate both software engineering processes and products. The increased application of empirical methods has also brought about an increase in discussions about adapting these .
Organization of studies and methods for data collection and analysis are key topics. Examples are taken from evaluation of industrial methods and the literature in system development. It is demanded that each course participant carry through or discuss an empirical study, with a corresponding project report that counts 50% in the final mark. Table of Contents Introduction Need for empirical studies in the context of software engineering. Goals and Benefits Basic Concepts: Measurement, Collection, Analysis Basic Concepts for Empirical Software Engineering Empirical Strategies: survey, case study, controlled experiment Process of an empirical study Tools State of the art.
Very little studies have considered the state of software engineering practices in the Africa context, even when there is a lot that is ongoing. The activities of EMSSEPA are expected to add to the existing body of knowledge in EMSE through survey studies, case studies, replication studies, software experimentations, software evaluations, and. The Software Engineering community is increasingly recognising the value of empirical evidence to support research and practice. Empirical evidence provides a means to evaluate the utility of promising research areas and to help practitioners to make informed technology adoption decisions. Hence, there is an increasing need for providing software .

This book describes different kinds of empirical studies and methods for performing such studies, e.g., for planning, performing, analyzing, and reporting such studies.
Actual studies are presented in detail in various chapters dealing with inspections, testing, object-oriented techniques, and component-based software engineering. The book is self-contained and it is suitable as a course book in undergraduate or graduate studies where the need for empirical studies in software engineering is stressed.
Exercises and assignments are included to combine the more theoretical material with practical : Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
Software engineering is not only about technical solutions. It is to a large extent also concerned with organizational issues, project management and human behaviour.
For a discipline like software engineering, empirical methods are crucial, since they allow for incorporating human behaviour into the research approach by: Empirical Methods and Studies in Software Engineering: Empirical Methods and Studies in Software Engineering: Experiences from Esernet.

Lectures, discussions and self studies, as colloquia. Compulsory activities via exercises: to carry out an self-defined empirical study, resulting in a project report that counts 50% of the final mark of the course. The book “Empirical Methods and Studies in Software Engineering – Experiences from ESERNET” is a result of the ESERNET project.
ESERNET is a thematic network project in in the European Union’s 5th Framework Programme under contract number IST, see It has the ambition, in.
The book balances empirical research concepts with exercises, examples, and real-life case studies, making it suitable for a course on empirical software engineering.
The author discusses the process of developing predictive models, such as defect prediction and change prediction, on data collected from source code by: Aims & Scope of the Journal. Empirical Software Engineering provides a forum for applied software engineering research with a strong empirical component.
Over the last decade, it has become clear that empirical studies are a fundamental component of software engineering research and practice: Software development practices and technologies must be investigated.

Empirical studies in software engineering are essential for the validation of different methods, techniques, tools, etc. Students play a fundamental role in carrying these studies out successfully. This book aims to fill that gap. The chapters are written by some of the top international empirical software engineering researchers and focus on the practical knowledge necessary for conducting, reporting, and using empirical methods in software engineering.
The book is intended to serve as a standard reference.4/5(1). Empirical software engineering is a related concept, sometimes used synonymously with experimental software engineering.
Empirical software engineering emphasizes the use of empirical studies of all kinds to accumulate knowledge. Methods used include experiments, case studies, surveys, and using whatever data is available.

Seaman, Member, IEEE Abstract—While empirical studies in software engineering are beginning to gain recognition in the research community, this subarea is also entering a new level of maturity by beginning to address the human aspects of software by: The Empirical Software Engineering (ESE) group at Mi-crosoft Research focuses on working in the intersection of the Software Engineering and CSCW communities.
“Over the last decade, it has become clear that empirical studies are a fundamental component of software engineering research and practice: Software development practices and technologiesCited by: 1. Introduction. Systematic Literature Review (SLR), more commonly known as systematic review, has emerged as one of the most popular methods of Evidence-Based Software Engineering (EBSE) since Kitchenham, Dybå and Jørgensen reported their seminal piece of work on bringing the evidence-based practice to Software Engineering (SE) in International Conference on Cited by: The book balances empirical research concepts with exercises, examples, and real-life case studies, making it suitable for a course on empirical software engineering.
The author discusses the process of developing predictive models, such as defect prediction and change prediction, on data collected from source code repositories. A good example of the harvest that empirical studies are generating relates to one of the holy grails of software engineering: the ability to measure the quality of a program, not by running it and looking for errors, but by automated examination of the source code itself.
