Software Quality Professional (SQP) Author Guidelines

As technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, autonomous systems, and the Internet of Things (IoT) expand, more and more people will be impacted by modern software-intensive systems. This journal is dedicated to promoting the understanding of quality principles and practices in software and software-intensive systems, including advanced manufacturing and Industry 4.0.

Are you a thought leader working to improve the quality or security of these systems? Are you a thoughtful practitioner working in or with software-intensive systems, learning lessons that others would benefit from? Even if you are not a software engineer, we invite you to share your insights in SQP, ASQ's premier journal covering research and applications in this area for academics and practitioners.

We consider:

  1. Full articles (2000-6000 words) describing research results, case studies, literature reviews, “how-to” reports on techniques or tools, and perspective/issues pieces that are well grounded in data and the academic literature, in any area related to quality of software-intensive systems
  2. Quality Nuggets (600-2000 words) with shorter insights drawn from any part of the quality body of knowledge
  3. Practitioner Insights (600-2000 words) specifically geared towards software engineers and quality professionals
  4. Book Reviews and Software Resource Reviews (200-500 words) for materials that are of interest to this community
