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.
SEN submissions are now being accepted at http://sen.sigsoft.org/.
New Site for Online Submissions
We have a new site, http://sen.sigsoft.org/, for online submission of items for publication in SEN. You can submit articles, reports, reviews, columns, announcements and book reviews.
Books Available For Review
If you're a member of SIGSOFT and would like to see your name in print, check out the list of available books, have the editor send you a book, read it, write up your review and send it in.
