José Itamar Mendes de Souza Júnior, Valéria Martins Silva, David Nadler Prata, and Patrick Letouze
Abstract—Systematic Review has become an essential scientific method to research in Computer Science, mainly because interdisciplinary studies and scientific research in the Internet are demanding it. This work provides a further analysis on the subject through a systematic review in the domain of Computer Science, which was performed using scientific papers databases relevant to Computer Science, from the years 2006 to 2012. Our research has shown that 75.5% of the total number of papers are concentrated in the top 10 journals. Only 54.9% of the papers declared in the keywords that it was a systematic review, and only 75.7% declared it in their title. Additionally, our research has verified that 59.8% of the papers are directly related to Software Engineering.

Index Terms—Computer science, technology and education, interdisciplinary research, software engineering, systematic review.
