Finding Think Tank Information & Grey Literature

Grey literature is produced by entities whose primary activity is not publishing. This material is of a scholarly nature (research and analysis) produced outside the usual publication channels such as peer-reviewed journals; it is generally not commercially published. Examples of grey literature are think tank reports, conference proceedings, studies from NGOs, nonprofit publications, technical reports, and working papers. There are many ways to access this information, besides going to the websites of think tanks themselves. The following list includes links to think tanks as well as digital repositories that you can search to discover grey literature.
