Addressing problems with replicability and validity of repository mining studies through a smart data platform

Abstract

The usage of empirical methods has grown common in software engineering. This trend spawned hundreds of publications, whose results are helping to understand and improve the software development process. Due to the data-driven nature of this venue of investigation, we identified several problems within the current state-of-the-art that pose a threat to the… (More)
