A list of top cited conferences/journals in research on software systems and engineering (Source: Google Scholar)

In software engineering research, IEEE TSE, Elsevier EMSE and ACM TOSEM are considered the top three journals, followed by reputed journals like ELSEVIER IST, JSS, etc. Among the conferences ICSE, FSE, ASE, and MSR are considered the top four, followed by reputed conferences like SANER, ICSME, ICPC, ESEM, etc.  IEEE Software, which publishes articles in a magazine format, is considered as a top journal due to its high impact and visibility. In software engineering community, top-tier conferences are as prestigious as the top-tier journals.

In my papers with my students and mentees, my name is normally put as the last (or second last) author to highlight my primary role as a supervisor/mentor (despite being hands-on with the students in all phases of the research like problem formulation, study design, and paper writeup). In my papers with my collaborators, the order of author names is based on the extent of contribution (following IEEE author policy).

In the following papers, students whom I supervised are marked with double star (**) and the students whom I mentored during a paper publication are marked with a single star (*).
