What Do We Know about Scientific Software Development's Agile Practices?

Sletholt, Magnus Thorstein; Hannay, Jo Erskine; Pfahl, Dietmar LU and Langtangen, Hans Petter (2012) In Computing in Science & Engineering 14(2). p.24-36
Abstract
The development of scientific software has similarities with processes that follow the software engineering "agile manifesto": responsiveness to change and collaboration are of utmost importance. But how well do current scientific software-development processes match the practices found in agile development methods, and what are the effects of using agile practices in such processes?
