Qualitative Studies Bibliography
These are all writings that I or my colleagues have used and found particularly useful in some stage of a study with a qualitative component, although not all of these are strictly about qualitative research. This list is not exhaustive, of course, but will be updated periodically. The focus is on practical resources for studies in software engineering.
