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. We 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. Protocol for this review has already been developed and its implementation is in progress. Expected outcome of this review will be state-of-the-art of empirical work in the field of software architecture, strength and effectiveness of empirical work, best practices and future research directions.
