What is Grey Literature?

According to the International Conference on Grey Literature, the term grey literature refers to publications such as conference proceedings, research reports, unpublished university papers, expert reports, working papers, and theses that cannot otherwise be obtained from bookstores. Grey literature is produced outside of the traditional publication process, which means that this type of literature can feature more current information than traditional types of publications. Grey literature is not always peer-reviewed; this means that the reader should take the time to evaluate their resource.
