Belief & evidence in empirical software engineering

Prem Devanbu, Thomas Zimmermann, Christian Bird
2016 Proceedings of the 38th International Conference on Software Engineering - ICSE '16  
Empirical software engineering has produced a steady stream of evidence-based results concerning the factors that affect important outcomes such as cost, quality, and interval.  ...  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.  ...  This paper, to our knowledge, is the first to empirically assess developer belief and project evidence in empirical software engineering.  ...

Contextual attributes impacting the effectiveness of requirements elicitation Techniques: Mapping theoretical and empirical research

Dante Carrizo, Oscar Dieste, Natalia Juristo
2017 Information and Software Technology  
Software engineers can utilise a myriad of elicitation techniques to capture relevant informa-tion in order to specify requirements.  ...  The effectiveness of these techniques varies depending on the con-text in which the elicitation takes place. So, it is important to identify the attributes that represent this context.  ...  To do so, we classified the conclusions of the empirical studies into two types: • in favour of the influence (FI) of an attribute, that is, evidence is found that the attribute influences the effectiveness  ...
