UF Databases

Always check the database that you using to find peer reviewed or scholarly articles (use the recommended databases in the Journal and Articles section) to see if you can also search for grey literature within that database. It is always important to remember what type of document you are currently searching in order to set up your search correctly! The database below is an example of one that specifically includes grey literature. 

Google Scholar

Please see the more extensive discussion of Google Scholar on Journals and Articles page, if you have questions about Google and Google Scholar. 

Remember Google Scholar is similar to Google in that...

  • the search results will not be reproducible
  •  the search results will be influenced by past searches
  • there is no way to know what was searched
  • you will have to work a little bit harder to confirm that the material is grey literature, etc.
