Organisations of all types, including companies, universities, government departments and NGOs disseminate their research, statistics, reports, guidelines, principles and practices through online publications on their own websites. In addition, your lecturer or tutor may have recommended particular internet sites relevant to your studies. Information that is published by individuals or organisations in this way is called grey literature.
The range of grey literature is vast. Here are just some examples of the possibilities.
|Company Annual Reports|
SSRN (Social Sciences)
|Publications from non-governmental organisations|
|Reports from research bodies/think tanks||
APO (Analysis & Policy Observatory)
|Research produced by the private sector|
|Reports from government agencies|
See the Grey Literature Library Guide for further advice.
