ICSE has formed partnerships with prestigious software engineering journals to incorporate journal-first papers into the ICSE program. Through this initiative, authors of journal-first papers accepted in the partnering journals will be invited to present their work at ICSE, thus providing an opportunity for the authors to engage directly with the community and offering the ICSE attendees an additional dimension to the research track program.
The journals that support the journal-first model as partners with ICSE are:
- IEEE Transaction of Software Engineering (IEEE TSE),
- ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology (ACM TOSEM),
- Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE).
