From page 19...
... Much of the expertise in complex software systems resides in corporations, government research centers, and other nonacademic institutions. It is largely inaccessible to the academic community because of considerations of product delivery, proprietary knowledge, and cultural differences between the corporate and academic communities involved in software research.
From page 20...
... There are a number of reasons that information generated in our universities flows only slowb into the commercial sector: Academics do not study large systems because they do not have them or have access to them, and commercial and academic software specialists tend to read and have their work published in different journals. On the other hand, many topflight corporate researchers and developers, to the extent that they publish at all, do not publish in archival computer science journals because their topics-problems of practice-are not deemed scholarly.

... Glean Insights from Behavioral and Managerial Sciences There is a need to better understand how groups of people collaborate in large projects involving a variety of participants sharing a rich but uneven distribution of knowledge and imagination among them. Software engineering research would be enhanced by greater interaction with behavioral, managerial, and other scientists that could lead to increasingly effective contributions to software engineering practice, in part by accelerating the transfer of technology into and through the software engineering community.
From page 22...
... Computer Science and Technology Board workshop participants recommended that the academic research community expand its notion of good research to accept review or synthesis studies, case studies, comparative analyses, and development of unifying models for individual or multiple domains. In particular, review or synthesis studies, which are common in a number of other fields, would support a greater and ongoing codification of software engineering knowledge and help to minimize the reinvention of techniques and processes.
