Sometimes referred to as ‘grey’ literature, our focus will be on research literature produced by policy organisations, NGOs, think tanks, etc.
This session will start by outlining options for researchers to identify relevant ‘grey’ literature and will then consider whether and how to incorporate these kinds of reports within academic literature reviews.
Next, we will consider popular options for undertaking more in-depth analysis of reports, strategies and other documents produced in the policy and advocacy realm (i.e., for treating these texts as research data, rather than as additions to a literature review).
