Software Engineering Notes (SEN) is edited, but not refereed, and has no impact factor. SEN is for informal writings and reports about software engineering and may not be suitable for academic writing. SEN contributions are archived in the ACM Digital Library and are publicized through many search engines and scientific indices.
There is a moratorium on research paper submissions until further notice. Please do not submit research papers at this time.
