Context: Current empirical research highlight the need for replications of empirical studies because replications plays an important role in the construction of scientific knowledge. Objective: Considering the importance of replications in the consolidation of the knowledge produced in the software engineering research, this study aims to update and extend the results produced in a previous mapping study seeking to discuss the current state of the replication work of empirical studies performed… CONTINUE READING
