Belief & evidence in empirical software engineering

Prem Devanbu, Thomas Zimmermann, Christian Bird
2016 Proceedings of the 38th International Conference on Software Engineering - ICSE '16  
In this paper, we describe a case study, on the prior beliefs of developers at Microsoft, and the relationship of these beliefs to actual empirical data on the projects in which these developers work.  ...  Our findings suggest that more effort should be taken to disseminate empirical findings to developers and that more in-depth study the interplay of belief and evidence in software practice is needed.  ...  The paper notes that quite a number of very prominently reported scientific results turn out to be wrong, and are subsequently retracted.  ...
