COVID-19 and Software Engineering
EMSE is now receiving submissions relating to topics on COVID-19.  See “Journal Updates” above.

Empirical Software Engineering provides a forum for applied software engineering research with a strong empirical component, and a venue for publishing empirical results relevant to both researchers and practitioners. Empirical studies presented here usually involve the collection and analysis of data and experience that can be used to characterize, evaluate and reveal relationships between software development deliverables, practices, and technologies. Over time, it is expected that such empirical results will form a body of knowledge leading to widely accepted and well-formed theories.

The journal also offers industrial experience reports detailing the application of software technologies - processes, methods, or tools - and their effectiveness in industrial settings.

Empirical Software Engineering promotes the publication of industry-relevant research, to address the significant gap between research and practice.
