Aims & Scope


JSEA is a professional journal in the field of software engineering and application. The goal of this journal is to provide an international platform for engineers and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and development in the field of software engineering. It is an archival publication to disseminate the results of fundamental and applied research, especially those relevant to software engineering. This journal aims to encourage deeper understanding and greater effectiveness in the theory analysis and engineering application relevant to software engineering fields.


All manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous and fair peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The journal publishes original papers including but not limited to the following fields:


  • · Automated Software Design and Synthesis
  • · Automated Software Specification
  • · Component-Based Software Engineering
  • · Computer-Supported Cooperative Work
  • · Formal Methods
  • · Knowledge Acquisition
  • · Object-Oriented Technology
  • · Patterns and Frameworks
  • · Process and Workflow Management
  • · Program Understanding Issues
  • · Programming Languages and Software Engineering
  • · Reflection and Metadata Approaches
  • · Reliability and Fault Tolerance
  • · Requirements Engineering
  • · Reverse Engineering
  • · Software Architecture
  • · Software Design Methods
  • · Software Domain Modeling and Meta-Modeling

  • · Tutoring, Help, Documentation Systems

  • We are also interested in short papers, as in the form of a letter, that clearly address a specific narrow problem and in papers that survey problems and new results pertaining to a certain topic. Authors may be invited to write short papers on the same topic in more than one successive issue of JSEA.
