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Grey literature generally refers to unpublished sources such as reports, conference proceedings, clinical trials, government documents, informal communications, practice guidelines, preprints and more.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 a specific systematic review methodology, you may find that other EDGE sessions such as 'Finding theses', 'Finding grey literature', and 'Literature reviews: plan and manage your search' better meet your needs.
