Grey literature is "That which is produced on all levels of government, academics, business and industry in print and electronic formats, but which is not controlled by commercial publishers." (Fourth International Conference on Grey Literature, Washington, DC, October, 1999)
Grey literature includes:
An annotated bibliography is a list of citations followed by a descriptive summary and/or evaluation.
Often the annotation will reflect the applicability of the source to the needs of the researcher.
The purpose of this type of bibliography is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.
A literature review discusses published information in a particular subject area, and sometimes within a certain time period.
A literature review can be a simple summary of the sources, but it usually has an organizational pattern and combines both summary and synthesis.
Sources included in a literature review may include: books, peer-reviewed articles, newspaper articles, videos, conference proceedings, and websites.
You should only include sources that are relevant, recent and reputable.
