Software - Practice and Experience is an internationally respected and rigorously refereed vehicle for the dissemination and discussion of practical experience with new and established software for both systems and applications. Contributions regularly: Describe detailed accounts of completed software-system projects which can serve as 'how-to-do-it' models for future work in the same field; Present short reports on programming techniques that can be used in a wide variety of areas; Document new techniques and tools that aid in solving software construction problems; Explain methods/techniques that cope with the special demands of large scale software projects. The journal also features timely Short Communications on rapidly developing new topics. The editors actively encourage papers which result from practical experience with tools and methods developed and used in both academic and industrial environments. The aim is to encourage practitioners to share their experiences with design implementation and evaluation of techniques and tools for software and software systems. Papers cover software design and implementation case studies describing the evolution of system and the thinking behind them and critical appraisals of software systems. The journal has always welcomed tutorial articles describing well-timed techniques not previously documented in computing literature. The emphasis is on practical experience; articles with theoretical or mathematical content are included only in cases where an understanding of the theory will lead to better practical systems. Articles range in length from a Short Communication (half to two pages) to the length required to give full treatment to a substantial piece of software (40 or more pages)
