Why Use Grey Literature?

Grey literature can help you locate evidence-based materials that may not be published in scholarly, peer-reviewed journals. Grey literature includes:

  • Dissertation and theses
  • Documents or reports from agencies (government or non-government), including policy reports
  • Conference proceedings
