Bibliography
I started compiling this bibliography for the Structuralist project at the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science when I was still a PhD student at the London School of Economics. The project is defunct since 2004 but I continue to conduct research on Structural Realism so I decided to resuscitate the bibliography with the aim to facilitate further research.  I hope to be able to provide regular updates. If you think there are relevant references that are not included in this bibliography please contact me:
