Occupational Science/Occupational Therapy Resources: Grey Literature

Grey Literature

"Grey literature" is defined as "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." (Luxembourg, 1997 - Expanded in New York, 2004). It is often more difficult to find and obtain than the published literature. 

It may include such things as conference procedings, policy studies and reports, white papers, annual reports, draft legislation, think-tank reports.
