Aims & Scope

The International Journal of Software Engineering (IJSE) provides a forum for archiving and disseminating state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice in all areas of software engineering. IJSE is a biannual referred journal published by Software Engineering Competence Center (SECC) of Information Technology Industry Development  Agency (ITIDA). The journal accepts new and significant papers from academia and industry in the various subjects of software engineering.
