18th International Conference on Grey Literature ? Leveraging Diversity in Grey Literature, November 28-29, 2016

Scientific information, much of which is published as grey literature, can play a pivotal role in the search for solutions to global problems. Diversity invigorates problem solving and science benefits from a community that approaches problems in a variety of creative ways. Despite their diversity, the hundreds of authors and researchers across the globe involved in grey literature can be seen as part of the same community contributing to the scientific enterprise in valuable ways. GL18 will focus on evidence and will seek to further raise awareness among the wider public to the strength of grey literature based on a shared commitment by a diverse community of authors and researchers responsible for its production and open access. This award will support attendance for 6 at the 18th International Conference on Grey Literature ? Leveraging Diversity in Grey Literature, November 28-29, 2016.
