CoCoME Literature Review

To understand how well existing studies on software evolution support research collaboration we conducted a literature review. We performed two selection iterations on the initial amount of 272 search hits, c.f., figure below. Each iteration was guided by defined inclusion and exclusion criteria. After the first iteration 105 papers were selected for further analysis. Within the second iteration 53 papers were identified.

The identified papers of the literature review are listed in the following.
