Systematic reviews (2 of 3): finding grey literature

Grey literature generally refers to unpublished sources such as reports, conference proceedings, clinical trials, government documents, informal communications, practice guidelines, preprints and more.

This workshop covers:

  • what grey literature is, why it is important and why you should include it
  • how to find it, where to look and what to search for
  • writing it up - what you should include in your methods section
  • keeping track of it all, documenting your searches and evaluating the quality

Please note: the Systematic Review series primarily supports health disciplines. If you are undertaking a review where you need to search systematically/comprehensively, but are not following specific systematic review methodology, you may find that other EDGE sessions such as ‘Finding theses’, ‘Finding grey literature’ and the ‘Literature reviews’ series better meet your needs.
