GOVT 402: Borders, Boundaries, and Democracy

Using Grey Literature in Research

Grey literature produced by think tanks, research institutes, and other policy organizations should be critically evaluated before they are used. Your literature reviews should use peer-reviewed scholarly articles (looked under Find Scholarly Articles for this type of literature). Policy reports might be relevant for some projects, but they should only be used as sources beyond your minimum required sources, and should be used cautiously.
