Requirements-Related Books and Articles

One of the features of Dr. Young's book, Effective Requirements Practices (Addison-Wesley, 2001), is that it provides a comprehensive bibliography of the best sources concerning requirements engineering. More than 230 references are provided, plus web sites and e-mail addresses for many industry experts. In addition, a list of approximately a dozen selected references is provided concerning each of the main topics in the "Key References and Suggested Readings" section at the end of each chapter together with a short summary of the information provided by each reference. These are the references that are considered the best of the requirements engineering literature for that topic. The reader can review the short summary to determine whether to research it further. Other references will be added to the list periodically.
