17 19 23 25 27 27 28 Although this chapter is mainly about how evidence-based ideas can be used in software engineering, we actually begin by examining some prior activities that helped pave the way for an acceptance of evidence-based thinking. To do so, we first examine some of the ‘challenges’ that empirical software engineer researchers were already posing, as well as some of the other factors that helped to make it the right time to introduce evidence-based thinking to software engineering in the years after 2004.

Each process also involves making a number of decisions, as outlined below. 4: The systematic review process. What searching strategy will be used? An important element of the review is to make clear where we will search, and how we will search for appropriate review material. In addition, we need to ensure that we have included all the different keywords and concepts that might be relevant. We address this in detail in Chapter 5. 12 Evidence-Based Software Engineering and Systematic Reviews What material is eligible for inclusion?

After removing 50 papers because they addressed topics for which a validation was not appropriate, they then classified the remaining 562. They observed that about a third of the papers had no validation at all (although the percentage of these dropped from 36% in 1985 to 19% in 1995), and that a third relied upon informal ‘assertions’ (in effect, “we tried it out on a sample and it worked”). They also noted that “experimentation terminology is sloppy”. ” (Tichy 1998), and addressed many of the fallacies that were apt to be raised in opposition whenever the use of empirical studies was advocated.
