A primary reference has been identified as the author team as a "key" reference, which is critically important to understanding a given topic. Each article will define a set of no more than 5-10 primary references. The general concept is that if a SEBoK user were to read the article on a topic and the Primary References, he or she would have a firm grasp on the principle concepts related to that article.
