Call For Papers
Software Testing, Verification and Reliability (STVR) is an international journal, publishing 8 issues per year. It publishes papers on theoretical and practical issues of software testing, verification and reliability. The goal of the journal is to publish high-quality papers that help researchers, educators and practitioners understand cutting edge results.

Aims and Scope

The journal is the premier outlet for research results on the subjects of testing, verification and reliability. Readers will find useful research on issues pertaining to building better software and evaluating it.

The journal is unique in its emphasis on theoretical foundations and applications to real-world software development. The balance of theory, empirical work, and practical applications provide readers with better techniques for testing, verifying and improving the reliability of software.

The journal targets researchers, practitioners, educators and students that have a vested interest in results generated by high-quality testing, verification and reliability modeling and evaluation of software. Topics of special interest include, but are not limited to:

    New criteria for software testing and verification
    Application of existing software testing and verification techniques to new types of software, including web applications, web services, embedded software, aspect-oriented software, and software architectures
    Model based testing
    Formal verification techniques such as model-checking
    Comparison of testing and verification techniques
    Measurement of and metrics for testing, verification and reliability
    Industrial experience with cutting edge techniques
    Descriptions and evaluations of commercial and open-source software testing tools
    Reliability modeling, measurement and application
    Testing and verification of software security
    Automated test data generation
    Process issues and methods
    Non-functional testing

Types of contributions include:

    Research Papers reporting original work, either theoretical or practical, which increase knowledge, understanding or practice in software testing, verification or reliability. Refereed prior to publication.
    Survey Papers that detail all the current knowledge in a specific area. Refereed.

Each scientific paper will be thoroughly reviewed by at least three reviewers.
