Protocol for Extending an existing Tertiary study of Systematic Literature Reviews in Software Engineering

Author(s)Barbara A. Kitchenham, O. Pearl Brereton, David Budgen
DetailsThis document is a protocol for extending a completed tertiary study that investigated the adoption of evidence-based software engineering and, in particular, the use of systematic literature reviews to aggregate software engineering primary studies. The original study was based on manual search of 13 journals and conference proceedings. This protocol defines a plan to extend the original tertiary study to include additional primary studies found by an electronic search of multiple digital libraries.
