A lot of documentation exists about Haskell, and its foundations, in the form of research papers written by those investigating language design. An enormous research effort, by hundreds of researchers over the past 20 years, has gone into making Haskell such a great language. In general, if a feature is not well understood, it isn't going to become part of the language.

Here is a selection of those papers, with the goal of making the wealth of material published on Haskell more available to the casual user, and not just researchers. Some of the papers are highly technical, others, not so. These papers are not suitable for those trying to learn the language from scratch, but more for those looking for a deeper understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of Haskell.
