Publications based on the Qualitas Corpus

Note: Keeping this page up to date has proven more difficult than expected due to the number of papers being published so this page only lists publications up to 2012. See publications since 2013 on Google Scholar for more recent publications.

This page lists publications that describe studies using or referring to the Qualitas Corpus. Those publications listed below are those that we are aware of that are based on official releases of the corpus (reverse publication order). Please let us know if you have a publication published during 2012 or earlier not listed here. Those papers by the Qualitas Research Group based on the early development of the corpus are kept separately.

Publications are listed in reverse order of publication.
