What is Grey Literature?

    

In general, grey literature publications are non-conventional, fugitive,
and sometimes ephemeral publications. They may include, but are not
limited to the following types of materials: reports (pre-prints,
preliminary progress and advanced reports, technical reports, statistical
reports, memoranda, state-of-the art reports, market research reports, etc.),
theses, conference proceedings, technical specifications and standards,
non-commercial translations, bibliographies, technical and commercial
documentation, and official documents not published commercially
(primarily government reports and documents)


(Alberani, 1990).

Grey Literature in the Health Sciences FROM Penn Libraries

    

    "Why is Grey Literature Important?

 

In the health sciences, grey literature is vital for developing a more
complete view of research on a particular topic and for producing
systematic reviews and other rigorous approaches to evidence synthesis.
Grey literature can be a good source for data, statistics and for very
recent research results. Because there's no publisher-enforced limitation
on length, these reports can be much more detailed than the journal
literature. And they can help to offset issues related to publication bias
such as: publication lag Results of studies may appear in grey literature,
such as conference proceedings, a year or more before they appear in a
peer-reviewed publications
positive result bias "

JOURNAL: International Journal on Grey Literature

    

The Grey Journal (TGJ) is a flagship journal for the grey literature community.
It crosses continents, disciplines, and sectors both public and private.
The Grey Journal not only deals with the topic of grey literature but also is
itself a document type that is classified as grey literature. It is akin to other
grey serial publications, such as conference proceedings, reports, working
papers, etc. The Grey Journal is geared to Colleges and Schools of Library
and Information Studies, as well as, information professionals, who produce,
publish, process, manage, disseminate, and use grey literature e.g. researchers,
editors, librarians, documentalists, archivists, journalists, intermediaries, etc.

This paper was presented at GL’99,
the 4th International Conference on Grey Literature,
Washington, DC, October 1999.

    Abstract:

    A lot of studies on grey literature abound in the literature.
Most of the studies, however, relate to disciplines other than LlS.
This study determines the focus and trends of grey literature publications.
Other objectives include determining the proportion of grey literature
published that focuses on national, regional and global issues, identifying
the various formats of grey literature prevalent in LIS, and the major
sources used by information professionals in publishing their grey
literature research.

Grey Literature in Australian Education

    

    Grey Literature in Australian Education

    Gerald White, Julian Thomas, Paul Weldon, Amanda Lawrence, Helen Galatis and Jess Tyndall (Australia)

    TGJ Volume 9, Number 2 2013

    Grey Journal

 

    Abstract:

  

 “The prevalence of informal publishing or grey literature in education
appears to have increased as digital technologies have become main-stream,
educators have become more proficient and policies have

moved increasingly towards supporting its use. In addition, the take up of
social networking technologies and innovative methods of digital publishing
have encouraged educators to produce, distribute and

share content and commentary. Grey literature may make a substantial
contribution to education even though issues such as credibility, access and
a lack of standards can pose problems for producers and users. This paper
begins by providing a context for the discussion of grey literature within the
broader policy and education environment in Australia. An overview of grey
literature as it appears in education in Australia introducing evidence of its
usage, dissemination and application in Australian education then follows.
Evidence about the access, dissemination and use of grey literature is drawn
from an
examination of the characteristics of a leading social networking and
digital publishing service that was used by educators in schools, training
institutes and teacher education faculties. This evidence is discussed in the
context of influential national, state and institutional policies that address the
use of digital technologies in education. As the take up of digital technologies
in education increases, there is an expectation that the access to, dissemination
of and use of digital publishing by and for educators will increase and have an
impact on online professional learning and awareness of education research
and practices”

 

    Introduction

    Background

    Grey literature definitions

    Australian education

    Educational innovation

    Integrators or grey literature curators

    A framework for harnessing grey literature

 

Conclusion

   

“Grey literature as defined in this paper is being relentlessly
produced by a range of government,
businesses and research
bodies. Education and training in Australia is a large and ever
changing enterprise that is dependent on government funding.
Change and innovation often occurs in educatio and training at
the national level as a result of policy, strategy and funding shifts.
The documentation produced by local, state and national education
and training projects in the course of such shifts in policy and
priorities is published by governments, national agencies and
research institutions.

 

Information about innovations also emerges from conferences,
workshops, newsletters and blogs. The increasing proportion of grey
literature emanating from education and training innovations

although important is obscure, difficult to locate and access, of mixed
value and used in limited ways. However, major national projects
have compounded these ephemeral characteristics of educational

grey literature through a lack of attention to archiving and systemic
preservation. Grey literature that is not archived contributes to the
loss of an important body of material on which education could build
and advance.

The importance of grey literature in education and training
cannot be underestimated.”

Factsheet 27 Grey Literature: Health FROM Teesdale University (Medical Great Britain)

    

    What is Grey Literature?

 

 “Grey literature is material which is not issued through normal commercial publication channels”

   

(Auger 1994)

    .

 “Grey literature includes: government reports, committee reports,
academic papers, theses, bibliographies, conference papers and
abstracts, discussion papers, newsletters, PowerPoint presentations,
conference proceedings, program evaluation reports, standards/best
practice documents, technical specifications and standards, and
working papers”

 

(Alberani Pietrangeli and Mazza, 1990).

 

The majority of grey literature is ‘primary’ literature
(the original writings on a subject) and usually

has not been peer reviewed. Therefore, you will need
to use your own judgement as to the literature’s validity

"Universities world-wide now create institutional repositories to
record the research conducted by academics. These are particularly
useful sources of grey literature. One place to begin is OpenDOAR.
Another resource for finding grey literature is BASE
(Bielefeld Academic Search Engine)."

    Why is gray literature important?

 

Gray literature is an important source of information.
Though not scholarly, it is produced by researchers and
practitioners in the field. It can often be produced more
quickly, have greater flexibility, and be more detailed than
other types of literature. "Gray literature serves scholars and
lay readers alike with research summaries, facts, statistics,
and other data that offer a more comprehensive view of the
topic of interest (Weintraub)."

Shades of Gray: Gray Literature, Peer-Review,
and the Struggle for Data in Fisheries Management

FROM Southern Fried Science

    

"Beyond the conventional route of peer-review, there exist
a vast accumulation of gray literature – conference reports,
technical notes, institutional papers, various articles written
for specific entities that enter into general circulation without
the filter of peer-review. Much of gray literature is valid,
robust science, but much of it is not. The challenge is that
sometimes gray literature is the only science available.

 

Especially in fisheries, where policy and management must be
made on the temporal scale of a fishing season, gray literature
is heavily relied upon. Peer-review can take upwards of a year
from submission to publication, at which point stock assessments
and management proposals may already be out of date."
