Overview

Top Research Topics at Product Focused Software Process Improvement?

  • Software development (40.29%)
  • Software engineering (27.46%)
  • Process management (27.23%)

The aim of Product Focused Software Process Improvement is to expand the discussion of research in Software development, Software engineering, Process management, Software and Software development process. Knowledge management and Systems engineering are some topics wherein Software development research discussed in the event have an impact. The Systems engineering study featured in Product Focused Software Process Improvement draws connections with the study of Risk analysis (engineering).

The research on Software engineering featured in the event combines topics in other fields like Software project management, Software system and Software architecture. While Process management is the focus of Product Focused Software Process Improvement, it also provided insights into the studies of Agile software development, Capability Maturity Model, Process (engineering), Operations management and Project management. Some problems in Agile software development that were presented in Product Focused Software Process Improvement overlapped with concepts under Scrum, Agile usability engineering, Lean software development and Agile Unified Process.

The studies in Software featured incorporate elements of Quality (business), Data mining and Engineering management. Empirical process (process control model) and Goal-Driven Software Development Process studies are all carried out as a component of the study in Software development process presented. While the event focused on Personal software process, it was also able to explore topics like Package development process, Team software process, Software Engineering Process Group and Social software engineering.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2016 edition, 2.86% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 48.53% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 19.12% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 20.59% of all publications and 11.76% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
