Goal-Oriented Requirements Engineering: A Systematic Literature Map
Over the last two decades, much attention hasbeen paid to the area of Goal-Oriented Requirements Engineering(GORE), where goals are used as a useful conceptualizationto elicit, model and analyze requirements, capturingalternatives and conflicts. Goal modeling has been adaptedand applied to many sub-topics within RE and beyond, suchas agent-orientation, aspect-orientation, business intelligence, model-driven development, security, and so on. Despite extensiveefforts in this field, the RE community lacks a recent, generalsystematic literature review of the area. As a first step towardsproviding a GORE overview, we present a Systematic LiteratureMap, focusing on GORE-related publications at a high-level, categorizing and analyzing paper information in order to answerseveral research questions, while omitting a detailed analysis ofindividual paper quality. Our Literature Map covers the 246 topcitedGORE-related conference and journal papers, accordingto Scopus, classifying them into a number of descriptive papertypes and topics, providing an analysis of the data, which ismade publicly available. We use our analysis results to makerecommendations concerning future GORE research.
