Freely Available Resources

Grey Literature

The term “grey literature” refers to documents which are not available from common commercial publishers. These are in particular Master’s theses, research reports, conference proceedings, company literature, etc. An advantage of this type of literature is above all its topicality, and, very often, also free accessibility.
