Automated Web Services Composition (AWSC) has received more attention in the research community. In the literature, automated composition of web services problem has been identified to find approaches that realize a particular request by detecting, composing and executing web services automatically. Goal-driven Architecture provides a promising solution to this problem. It allows a composition system to formulate a request in terms of a goal and solves it by automatically discovering, composing and executing appropriate web services. The main element of this architecture is the concept of goal because a goal carries all the necessary information for automated discovery, composition and execution of web services. Our aim is to study the Automated Web services composition approaches based on this architecture and to analyze them based on the concept of goal.
