AbstractSoftware engineers might make incorrect decisions about adopting new techniques if they don’t consider scientific evidence about the techniques’ efficacy. Procedures used for evidence-based medicine can also apply to software engineering. Such evidence-based software engineering fits well with current ideas concerning software process improvement and could be an important means for closing the gap between research and practice. However, EBSE presents difficulties for practitioners because current software engineering research is limited and not reported in a manner that assists accumulation and evaluation of evidence.
