Data mining techniques provide people with new power to research and manipulate the existing large volume of data. A data mining process discovers interesting information from the hidden data that can either be used for future prediction and/or intelligently summarising the details of the data. There are many achievements of applying data mining techniques in various areas such as marketing, medical, and financial, although few of them can be currently seen in software engineering domain. In this paper, a proposed data mining application in software engineering domain is explained and experimented. The empirical results demonstrate the capability of data mining techniques in software engineering domain and the potential benefits in applying data mining in this area.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
