COVID 19 and impact on peer review
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

The Software Quality Journal promotes awareness of the crucial role of quality management in the effective construction of the software systems developed, used and maintained by organizations in pursuit of their business objectives. It also provides a forum for exchange of experience and information on quality management and the methods, tools and products used to measure and achieve it. Finally, it provides a vehicle for the publication of academic papers related to all aspects of software quality.

The Journal addresses all aspects of software quality from both a practical and an academic viewpoint. It publishes contributions from practitioners and academics, as well as national and international policy and standard making bodies, and sets out to be the definitive international reference source for such information.
