The US Government General Accountability Office has won the 2012 Ignobel Prize for issuing a report about reports about reports that recommends the preparation of a report about the report about reports about reports.
This website has been created for the Grey Literature Strategies project, a 3 year research project investigating best practice strategies for managing and accessing informal publications.
This website will be the place where we can keep the community informed about our project and also encourage discussion and dissemination of ideas and debate on these issues. We will also be setting up and participating in discussions on social media networks as go and creating resource lists and publishing information in a variety of formats. We hope that anyone interested in this issue will engage with the project and help us develop better strategies for the many stakeholders engaged with grey literature including producers, users and collecting organisations.
