Greg Wilson did a book, which I did not enjoy, on this topic: http://shop.oreilly.com/product/9780596808303.do and a slideshow, which I recommend: http://www.slideshare.net/gvwilson/bits-of-evidence-2338367 .

My take is that there is much to learn from science about how to evaluate propositions regarding software engineering (most, but not all, of them are unsupported) but few new useful ideas.
