Requirements patterns have recently been gaining popularity among research communities to help users in identifying, analysing and structuring requirements of a software system. While still in their early stage of development, organizing these patterns would not only assist practitioners in accessing patterns but also provide developers with a direction to design their patterns accordingly. In this paper, an extensive study of various pattern based methods for the requirements phase is reported. Their features, content, structure, purpose, role in assisting requirements engineering activities, similarities and differences are analyzed as we subsequently classify the constituting requirements patterns based on the kind of artefact they present to the user.
