As a result of being interested in Stack Overflow data myself, the need arose to track other Stack Overflow-based research.

The following is an attempt to list the academic papers mentioning Stack Overflow/Exchange or using Stack Exchange data. This also includes the works mentioned in the SO blog entry that started the trend, as well as two other questions on meta, one from 2010, and another one from 2011.

If you know of papers that are not listed, please edit the answer directly.

I realised it might be useful to have all the BibTeX entries in a single file, so I started this GitHub Gist.

    Year 2123: Stack Overflow is in the Top-20 of the "ISI Master Journal List" due to the number of citations and accumulated impact factor.. – quetzalcoatl Dec 13 '13 at 10:28

    The answers are split because SO allows at most 30k characters per answer. – Bogdan Vasilescu Feb 23 '14 at 18:04

    what about one answer per year? – Zach Smith Dec 12 '17 at 9:17
