Impact Score 8.25
Source code is the version of software as it is originally written by a human in plain text. It is the source code that contains the only precise description of the behavior of a software system. For this special issue, we encourage submission of papers that describe original, high-quality, empirically and/or theoretically validated work in source code analysis and manipulation.
We solicit papers that report on the design and implementation of tools for source code analysis and manipulation, as well as libraries, infrastructure, and the real world studies enabled by these advances.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
All manuscripts should follow the guidelines for publishing in the Journal of Systems and Software, available at https://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-systems-and-software.
Authors should select “VSI:SCAM2020”, from the "Choose Article Type" pull-down menu during the submission process.
Submitted papers must be original, must not have been previously published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage submission of extended papers from the 20th IEEE International Working Conference on Source Code Analysis and Manipulation (SCAM 2020), including papers from the research, engineering, NIER, and RENE tracks. In case a paper has been already presented at SCAM 2020 conference or elsewhere, it should be extended by at least 30% of new material different from the original work.
The guest editors together with the Editors-in-Chief and the Special Issues Editor[s] will make final decisions.
