Software Architecture (SA) plays important role in software development as it acts as a skeleton and the whole development revolves around it. As the SA as a discipline is maturing, large number of empirically supported studies are being reported in SA. There is a need to systematically aggregate, analyze and synthesize evidence based studies in SA. The authors plan to systematically investigate evidence-based SA studies to see and report state of the art in evidence based SA reported research. This paper aims at providing a brief description of Systematic Literature Review (SLR) protocol to describe a process for synthesizing the empirically supported work in the area of SA.
