What papers and books would you consider as must-reads for software engineering researchers, especially for researchers that do qualitative studies? Here is my list of readings that I feel are important, seminal, or fundamental for conducting, communicating, and understanding software engineering research. In my opinion, each one of these provides important aspects.

In no particular order:

More specific aspects in qualitative research:

There are many other recommended papers and books (too many to fit in a single blog post), so I tried to list the papers that should apply to most researchers. Have I forgotten to mention an important paper? Please let me know.
