Grey literature usage l.jpg
Grey Literature Usage

  • Respondents were asked to name 2 documents used in the last month that were important to their work.

    • Participants provided document titles and sources which we then located.

    • 59% of documents listed were Grey Literature.

    • Many thought they could find all Grey Literature via traditional online services.

Liddy et al., GL6 - Usage


On usage statistics l.jpg
On usage statistics

  • The big silence.

  • Confirms the DRIVER study 2007:

  • 70% of the repositories do log the statistical data on access but analysis and interpretation « in development » or « problematic ».

  • No public access to statistics but in some cases, information to authors (CCSD).

Schopfel et al., GL10 – Usage Stats


Advantages of including grey in a literature review l.jpg
Advantages of including ‘grey’ in a literature review

  • Access to wider variety of information

  • Reduces publication bias

  • Contain more local information- important for planning

  • Contain process information- important for policy makers

Knight et al., GL6 - Use


Advantages of including grey in a literature review7 l.jpg
Advantages of including ‘grey’ in a literature review

  • Reports not published in peer reviewed journals (e.g. UN, WHO, HTA)

  • Access to new research

  • World Wide Web (4-6 Billion web pages)

  • Contain valuable and unique information, which is not found elsewhere

Knight et al., GL6 - Use


Conclusion l.jpg
Conclusion

  • The identification of relevant studies in the grey literature and their inclusion in systematic reviews can be particularly time-consuming and difficult.

  • However, the inclusion of grey literature in systematic reviews will help to overcome some of the problems of publication bias and evidence for process and context

  • Aberdeen University is taking forward the development of the tools which can be used to review the grey literature in terms of best available evidence and evaluation mechanisms

KIP & Grey Literature

A core function of KIP is to facilitate access to grey literature such as:

Audience for KIP:

  • Geologists & geographers

  • Land managers & land planners

  • Maps

  • Insurance companies & home buyers

  • Measurements of cave notes

  • Biologists & cave enthusiasts

  • Notes on subterranean wildlife

Analysis of GL in the changing context (2)

IN FACT

Why is it important to raise the profile of GL?

Because grey literature is still useful…

GL is more likely to:

  • report negative results

  • discuss studies that concluded prematurely

  • offer a much more comprehensive picture of the state of knowledge for any topic

Conclusions Energy Physics

  • What did we learn?

    • Community-driven systems answer the needs of the community.

    • Listen to the users – they know what they want!

    • Increased importance of a diversifying grey literature…

  • Full analysis still in progress – more coming soon!

  • What’s next:

    • Create a single information service for the entire community

    • Include new features

    • Survey your users!

Guidelines for GL Citations experience in GL, ranking by frequency

  • General

  • All conference papers should contain references

  • Standardization should be maintained among the citations provided

  • The more complete and accurate a citation, the more guarantee of a paper´s content and subsequent review

    Specific

  • Endnotes are preferred and should be numbered

  • Hyperlink need the accompanying name of resource and date;a simple URL is not acceptable

  • If the citation is to a corporate author, the acronym takes precedence

  • If the document type is known, it should be stated at the close of a citation

  • If a citation is revised and refers to an edited and/or abridged work,the original (re)source should also be mentioned.

Citation analysis

Differences between GL and conventional literature tend to disappear ….

Citation counts, citations over time, immediacy impact, self-citations

  • Highly cited GL receives more citations by GL documents and viceversa

  • GL receives a higher number of citations in the first 5 years

  • Language

Some typical characteristics of GL can be still noticed
