Software engineering (SE)  is "an engineering branch associated with development of software product using well-defined scientific principles, methods and procedures. The outcome of software engineering is an efficient and reliable software product” (TutorialsPoint, 2021). SE principles are applied in different fields where automation or computerization is needed. However, despite its ubiquitous applications, little attention is provided in terms of publication of these software packages and their role in the society. To address this gap, IJCSR is accepting papers with the theme “Software Engineering for the Society”. The aim of this theme is to publish papers that discuss the details of the software packages, its development process, evaluation, and impact on society.

This special issue will explore, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Apps and data mining
  • Computer-supported collaborative learning
  • Business intelligence software
  • Enterprise software
  • Intelligent tutoring systems
  • Learning management systems development
  • Machine learning with SE
  • Mobile application
  • Search-based systems
  • Social issues of software packages
  • Software packages and digital divide
  • Software packages and ethical issues
  • Software packages and human behaviour
  • Software packages and privacy issues
  • Website development
