Omission of quality software development practices: a systematic literature review
Ghanbari H., Vartiainen T., Siponen M.  ACM Computing Surveys 51(2): 1-27, 2018. Type: Article

Omitting quality assurance practices in software development such as inspection often results in software deficiencies that have to be addressed later. To better understand the factors and processes involved in omission, the authors conducted a sy...
