    Abstract

    This paper describes an empirical mapping study, which was designed to identify what aspects of Software Requirement Specifications (SRS) are empirically evaluated, in which context, and by using which research method. On the basis of 46 identified and categorized primary studies, we found that understandability is the most commonly evaluated aspect of SRS, experiments are the most commonly used research method, and the academic environment is where most empirical evaluation takes place.
