Global Software Development (GSD) is a modern software engineering paradigm adopted by many client organisations in developed countries to get high quality product at low cost in low wage countries. Production of high quality software is considered as one of the key factor in the rapid growth of GSD. However GSD projects have put new challenges to practitioners and researchers. In order to address these challenges Software Quality Metrics (SQMs) are frequently used in organisations to fabricate high quality products. This SLR protocol is to identify and assess strengths and weaknesses of the existing SQMs used in GSD to assist vendor organisations in choosing appropriate SQMs for measuring software quality.
