Software Engineering Journals

One of my younger colleagues recently asked me: "What journals in software engineering are top rank in your opinion?" The last phrase "in your opinion" is very important. Nevertheless, I came up with a list ...

What I list in "level I" is not controversial. My level III list is not complete, but is very much a reflection of my interests. Also, I am fully aware that some journals I put into level IV may be better than I realize, so this list also to some extent reflects my ignorance.

  1. Top general software engineering journals.
  2. General software engineering journals.
  3. Top special area journals.
  4. Next level general software engineering journals.
