Twenty-Fourth International Conference on Grey Literature

join the forum

For over three decades, authors and researchers in the field of information have addressed the many challenges in publishing grey literature. In so doing, they have confronted core issues. Is grey literature published literature, and if so, how is it published; how does it differ from commercially published literature; and foremost how can it stay abreast with the technological developments that will ensure its access, uses, and preservation for scholarly research and citizen science well into the 21st Century.
The response to such questions lies in the collaboration and integrated roles of publishing bodies and their affiliate libraries and information centers, where grey literature is produced and processed. While currentness is inherent to grey literature in that it is situated at the cutting edge of research, and while it is comprehensive in that it captures the corpus of both the research process and issuing results, grey literature publishing often lacks the financial resources and technical expertise afforded commercial publishers.
Due consideration should be given to shared workflows grounded in an understanding and commitment that production and publication constitute two integral parts in publishing today’s digital grey literature. GL2022 will address the components of such shared workflows embedded in FAIR data principles and implemented by diverse communities of practice in this our digital Century.
