  • Focuses on theoretical and practical issues in the development and application of software and system modeling languages, techniques, and methods
  • SoSyM offers high-quality works that advance the theoretical underpinnings of modeling languages and techniques
  • Offers a deeper understanding of languages and techniques

Software and System Modeling (SoSyM) is a quarterly international journal that focuses on theoretical and practical issues in the development and application of software and system modeling languages, techniques, and methods, such as the Unified Modeling Language. The aim of SoSyM is to publish high-quality works that further understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of modeling languages and techniques, present rigorous analyses of modeling experiences, and present scalable modeling techniques and processes that facilitate rigorous and economical development of software.

SoSyM is unique in its emphasis on theoretical foundations of modeling languages and techniques and on rigorous analysis of "real-world" modeling experiences. The balance of theoretical and experience-based works provides insights that can lead to better modeling languages and techniques. In addition, modeling practitioners can gain a deeper understanding of languages and techniques that can lead to more effective applications.

    Software and System Modeling (SoSyM) is a quarterly international journal that focuses on theoretical and practical issues pertaining to the development and application of software and system modeling languages, techniques, and methods, such as the Unified Modeling Language (UML). The aim of the journal is to publish high-quality works that further understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of modeling languages and techniques, present rigorous analyses of modeling experiences, and present scalable modeling techniques and processes that facilitate rigorous and economical development of software.

    The journal is unique in its emphasis on theoretical foundations of modeling languages and techniques and on rigorous analyses of "real-world" modeling experiences. The balance of theoretical works and works based on in-depth analyses of experiences will provide researchers with insights that can lead to better modeling languages and techniques, and will provide modeling practitioners with a deeper understanding of modeling languages and techniques that can lead to more effective application.

    The journal targets researchers, practitioners and students that have a vested interest in results generated by high-quality modeling research and by rigorously analyzing modeling experiences.

    We invite authors to submit papers that discuss and analyze concerns and experiences pertaining to software and system modeling languages, techniques, tools, practices and other facets. The following are some of the topic areas that are of special interest:

    Methodological issues Development of modeling standards
    Formal syntax and semantics of modeling languages such as the UML
    Rigorous model-based analysis
    Model composition and transformation
    Metamodeling techniques
    Measuring quality of models
    Modeling support for aspect-oriented development
    Ontological approaches to model engineering
    Generating test and code artifacts from models
    Model development tool environments
    Case studies and experience reports with significant lessons learned
    Comparative analyses of modeling languages and techniques
    Scientific assessment of modeling practices

    Each scientific paper will be thoroughly reviewed by at least four reviewers.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".
