Journal of Software Engineering Research and Development

   Journal of Software Engineering Research and Development (JSERD)
welcomes submissions to the thematic series on "15 Years of agile software
development" <>.
   Early research on agile development focused on issues related to the
adoption of agile methods [2] as well as the effectiveness of pairs in
relation to individuals [9] in software development [4]. Many of those
early studies focused on the investigation of team dynamics, e.g., trust,
self-organization, and communication [7]; consequences of test-driven
development [5]; adoption [6] and post-adoption[3] issues; as well as
challenges of implementing agile in distributed settings [8].
   More recently, we have seen research in agile software development and
practice mature. This has been witnessed by the higher number of journal
publications which emphasize empirical methods, and drawing on the
theoretical discourse of more mature research fields [1].
   The aim of this thematic series is to draw attention to the mature state
of agile empirical research as well as to investigate new venues, in
combination with other research areas that may help broaden our
understanding of the myriad implications of agile software development.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Adoption of Agile / Lean
- Agile / Lean in Distributed Environments and Large Teams
- Agile in Government
- Agile Practices and Future Trends, Evolution and Revolution (Technical or
- Agile Principles, Lean Manufacturing and Other Disciplines
- Agile Project Management, Outsourcing and Governance in the Agile Context
- Agile Testing & Quality: Techniques, Patterns and Automated Support
- Conceptual Studies and Theoretical Foundations of Agile / Lean
- Development in Distributed and Global Agile Teams
- DevOps and Continuous Delivery
- Experimental Studies with Agile / Lean
- Human and Social Aspects in Agile Methods
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship Agile
- Lean Startups
- Managing Technical Debt
- Metrics, Measurements and Mining Repositories in the Context of Agile
- Organizational Transformation and Cultural Aspects on Agile Business
- Patterns and Anti-patterns applying Agile / Lean
- Refactoring Issues
- Scaling Agile to Large Corporations
- Systems and Software Architecture and Development of Critical Systems
- Teaching and Coaching Agile and Lean
- Tools and Techniques on Agile / Lean
- User Experience (UX) Environments on Agile / Lean
- User Roles (co-participation)
