Regression testing is a costly but important maintenance activity which performed to revalidate modified software to make sure that changes did not adversely affect software behavior. Several studies have been carried out regarding regression testing domain in the literature. However, these studies need to be classified, summarized and ordered in a systematic manner to spot on the current state of the art of regression testing field. Therefore, this paper will carry out a systematic literature review (SLR) protocol to illustrate the process of preparation and undertaking a systematic review later. In this protocol, a manual search has been conducted to obtain related studies from four various sources where those studies were classified under journal, conference proceeding, and book chapter categories within specific criteria. Consequently, the initial search resulted in 1261 unfiltered studies, which then decreased according to certain predefined criteria up to 246 selected relevant studies. As a result, this protocol will behave as a guideline towards conducting SLR in the near future.
