IJFSE proposes and fosters discussions on the definition and identification of methods, techniques, approaches, patterns and tools for systemic analysis and investigation of software failures encompassing the retrospective analysis of the impact on processes for software products and systems specification, design, development and maintenance.


 Topics covered include

  • Software defect analysis methods and tools
  • Mathematical and statistical models for data analysis and correlations
  • Formal methods
  • Product and process metrics collection and analysis
  • Simulation techniques and environments
  • System and service engineering
  • Systems and services science
  • Software integrity
  • Domain-specific software engineering techniques and languages
  • Novel software engineering methodologies
  • Software development environments and CASE tools
  • Software testing, analysis and verification
  • Software understanding and reengineering
  • Measurement, metrics, estimation methods, and empirical studies
  • Software quality assurance

More on this journal...

IJFSE aims at establishing a forum for encouraging research and disseminating experiences on the identification and definition of methodologies, technologies, approaches to software defects detection, analysis, recognition, classification and prevention, as well as techniques and methods, including mathematical modelling and simulations, for data analysis and impact evaluation on software processes for systems, product and service engineering, and on software and service development and maintenance, in order to avoid injecting the same defects in new systems.


Software engineering researchers and practitioners, software developers and systems testers, IT specialists, software and systems quality assurance managers, and educators.


IJFSE publishes original research papers, technical and experience reports, case studies and conference reports. Special Issues devoted to relevant topics in related research areas will occasionally be published.
