About the Journal

ECEASST is currently moving its home from Universitätsbibliothek TU Berlin to Berlin Universities Publishing (BerlinUP). Thank you for your patience while we sort out the hickups on the way...


Aims of this journal

ECEASST is a fully refereed journal and provides a forum for practitioners, educators and researchers for disseminating innovative research in the area of software and system technology. The journal is intended as a medium which rapidly publishes conference and workshop proceedings, provided that all contributions are original and peer reviewed. ECEASST is an open access on-line journal, i.e. it provides unlimited access to all contributions which are published electronically only. In this way, ECEASST provides full-text access to all papers and supports the provision of fast and broad feedback to published work.

ECEASST is indexed in Scopus and DBLP, and listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).

Scope of this journal

The scope of ECEASST is Software Science and Technology as in EASST (European Association of Software Science and Technology), which includes all aspects related to the systematic and rigorous engineering of software and systems. This journal is meant to present primary results achieved in this field. Being primarily a medium for publishing proceedings of conferences and workshops on EASST-related topics, such as the satellite events of ETAPS and further EASST-supported conferences, this journal shall also be opened up for special issues on specific topics.

The submission file must be a PDF created using the ECEASST templates. Please note that ECEASST publishes only special issues devoted to specific scientific events or topics, and does not handle individual submissions.


ECEASST does not charge any fees for submission and article processing.

Publication ethics and publication malpractice statement

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the managing and the guest editor, the peer reviewer, and the society of EASST. ECEASST recognises its responsibilities and conforms to the guideline (see here) of  the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), a charitable organization that provides a forum for scientific journal editors and publishers to discuss issues relating to the integrity of the work submitted to or published in their journals.
