Grey Literature

“Information produced on all levels of government, academics, business and industry in electronic and print formats not controlled by commercial publishing, i.e. where publishing is not the primary activity of the producing body.” (1)

Grey literature can include dissertations, conference proceedings, trials data, reports, white papers, and other documents. Depending on the research question, grey literature can be an important source, as in questions of government policy, or to balance publication bias.
