Exploring Web Search Engines to Find Architectural Knowledge [article]

Mohamed Soliman, Marion Wiese, Yikun Li, Matthias Riebisch, Paris Avgeriou
2021 arXiv   pre-print
One pragmatic approach is to search for AK on the web using traditional search engines (e.g. Google); this is common practice among software engineers.  ...  Based on how the subjects assessed the nature and relevance of the retrieved results, we determined how effective web search engines are to find relevant architectural information.  ...  The conducted case study is an embedded case study, where the ADD steps constitute our case and the executed search queries from the 53 software engineers are the units of analysis.  ...
