Abstract

Context: The software engineering community is becoming more aware of the need for experimental replications. In spite of the importance of this topic, there is still much inconsistency in the terminology used to describe replications. Objective: Understand the perspectives of empirical researchers about various terms used to characterize replications and propose a consistent taxonomy of terms. Method: A survey followed by plenary discussion during the 2013 International Software Engineering Research Network meeting. Results: We propose a taxonomy which consolidates the disparate terminology. This taxonomy had a high level of agreement among workshop attendees. Conclusion: Consistent terminology is important for any field to progress. This work is the first step in that direction. Additional study and discussion is still necessary.
