Bridging the research-practice gap in requirements engineering
This paper examines the perceived research-practice gap in software requirements engineering, with a particular focus on requirements specification and modelling. Various contributions by researchers to write requirements specifications are reviewed and in addition practitioners viewpoints are also taken into consideration. On comparing the research and practice in this field, possible causes for the gap are identified. The barriers to adopt research contributions in practice are also reviewed. Finally recommendations to overcome this gap are made.
