Knowledge syntheses that rely solely on published academic literature are at high risk of publication bias. Searching the grey literature is essential for mitigating this risk, but ‘grey literature’ is a nebulous concept, tricky to incorporate into syntheses and difficult to find.

Building on the skills we practiced in Parts 1 and 2, in this hands-on workshop students will learn to:

Define what is grey literature (and what’s it’s not)
Develop a strategy for identifying appropriate sources of grey literature
Utilize a methodological, transparent approach to searching sources of grey literature
Demonstrate best practices for supplementary search techniques including hand-searching and reference tracking
Integrate strategies for incorporating grey literature and supplementary search techniques into the review workflow
Evaluate search methods to identify proper reporting
