Grey Literature

Grey literature is information published and distributed outside of traditional commercial or academic channels. Examples included reports, policy and white papers, conference papers and proceedings, dissertations, government documents, press releases, survey results, and interviews. Since they are not always formally published, they can be difficult to find and evaluate. This type of material can also be biased, so carefully examine who is providing this information and what their aims are in sharing it. Decide if the information is going to be useful to you in your research and making your argument. 

In addition to these databases, the organizations linked to on this page are good sources for finding grey literature.
