Background - Validity threats should be considered and consistently reported to judge the value of an empirical software engineering research study. The relevance of specific threats for a particular research study depends on the worldview or philosophical worldview of the researchers of the study. Problem/Gap - In software engineering, different categorizations exist, which leads to inconsistent reporting and consideration of threats. Contribution - In this paper, we relate different… CONTINUE READING
