Finding grey literature

Grey literature generally refers to unpublished sources such as government documents, reports, conference proceedings, informal communications, guidelines, preprints and more.

This workshop will cover:

  • 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 quality

 

Please note: If you are undertaking a systematic or scoping review you may find that the EDGE sessions in the ‘Systematic review’ series (‘Finding the evidence’, ‘Finding grey literature’ and ‘Manage your results’) better meet your needs.
