Grey literature describes both unpublished or published documents, which are not controlled by commercial publishers. These sources include government and non-government reports, policy statements and papers, conference proceedings and theses, news sources and bulletins, and technical reports and standards. Again, depending on the focus of your assessments, this information may be used to supplement your primary resources, such as research and theoretical literature. Grey Literature can be accessed by conducting a Google search or directly from relevant government, organisational and institutional websites.

More information about grey literature as well as some useful links can be found on our Useful Websites guide.
