Kitchenham et al report 53 unique systematic literature reviews in software engineering being published between 2004 and 2008 [103, 104] they conclude that there is a growth of the number of systematic literature reviews being published, and that the quality of the reviews tend to be increasing too. Here is a list of important tips that you might want to note when undertaking a literature review: engage in an effective and comprehensive literature search use the major publications in the field - there are so many articles available on your research topic.
A thorough literature review is different from the personal types of information searches one does and even different from the writing assignments required in undergraduate classes this section explains why they are different and when to use the different search types. Systematic literature reviews (slrs) have been gaining significant attention from software engineering researchers since 2004 several researchers have reported their experiences of and lessons learned from applying systematic reviews to different subject matters in software engineering.

Abstract: systematic literature reviews (slrs) have been gaining significant attention from software engineering researchers since 2004 several researchers have reported their experiences of and lessons learned from applying systematic reviews to different subject matters in software engineering.
A literature review is usually an initial step in any research and development enterprise it is the means by which the researcher can perform a mapping of the existing and previously developed knowledge and initiatives in the field. The systematic literature reviews (slrs) are a formally planned approach in finding, evaluating and summarising all available evidence on a specific research question the objective of this paper is to compare formal slrs and informal literature reviews in software engineering for this purpose, a. Step 2 of your literature review - organizing and screening posted on april 6, 2012 updated on october 13, 2013 note - if you haven't read it already, i suggest you go back and read last week's post describing step 1 in the process: finding stuff.

Context: making best use of the growing number of empirical studies in software engineering, for making decisions and formulating research questions, requires the ability to construct an objective summary of available research evidence. Two of the missed papers were border line for inclusion (one was a small-scale review that was not the main topic of the paper and the other a computer science rather than software engineering study), and the remaining missed study used the term review but not literature review.
