Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Knowledge is the most important resource in the field of software development, the success of which is based on the exchange of knowledge among the team members of the software development project. The aim of this research is to provide a catalogue of literature reviews available to researchers and software developers. For this tertiary study, a systematic mapping study was conducted to identify and analyze existing secondary studies on knowledge sharing in software development. After the search process, 11 secondary studies were selected, most of them of type Systematic Literature Review and published in journals. In terms of topics, we mainly find changes in behavior in knowledge sharing factors, challenges, and solutions. Regarding to research topics, we found that the category of behavior change was the most reported. Finally, most of the research questions were exploratory, descriptive subtype and classification.
