Finding Grey Literature


Databases that Include Grey Literature

Many databases include grey literature in addition to traditional literature, but may not index materials in a way that makes them searchable by a filter. The following databases use filters to limit by content types such as conference proceedings, clinical trials, dissertations, clinical practice guidelines, and government documents. Keep in mind - this is not a comprehensive list, so other databases can still be useful to your search!
