Systematic literature reviews in software engineering—Enhancement of the study selection process using Cohen’s kappa statistic

Pérez Benedí, Jenifer; Díaz Fernández, Jessica; García Martín, Javier; Tabuenca, B
Abstract:
Systematic literature reviews (SLRs) rely on a rigorous and auditable methodology for minimizing biases and ensuring reliability. A common kind of bias arises when selecting studies using a set of inclusion/exclusion criteria. This bias can be decreased through dual revision, which makes the selection process more time-consuming and remains prone to generating bias depending on how each researcher interprets the inclusion/exclusion criteria.
