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.
