Research for policy and practice is often produced and used in the form of reports and papers that are created by organisations such as government departments and agencies, think tanks, NGOs and academic centres. Yet the role and value of this material is little understood and often overlooked. This public seminar will present findings from two innovative projects aiming to enhance the value of grey literature for policy and practice. The Grey Literature Strategies ARC Linkage project and the NLA's new Australian Government Web Archive.

Three online surveys for the Grey Literature Strategies research project were conducted in 2013. The online version of the questionaires is no longer live but the questionaires can be dowloaded as word or PDF versions below.

Does your organisation PRODUCE or COLLECT policy reports and papers? We need to hear from you today!

The Grey Literature Strategies Research Project's surveys of producers and collectors is closing this Friday 8 November. This is a unique chance to contribute to our understanding of how research and information for public policy is produced and collected.

Does your organisation PRODUCE or COLLECT policy reports and papers?

We need to hear from you!

While knowledge of how people use evidence for policy making has grown in the last few years, little is known about its production and to what extent it is collected and managed.

In a follow up to our survey of users, the Grey Literature Strategies Research Project is now running a survey of organisations that produce research and information for policy and practice – academic centres, government departments and agencies, NGOs, consultants etc. And a survey of collection and information services – government and special libraries, clearing houses, repositories, research libraries etc.

We only need one survey completed per organisation, department or service and the findings will help immensely as we try to find ways to improve the value and access of grey literature for public policy. And you can go in the running to win a $50 gift voucher!
