When the Virtual Becomes Reality: An Environmental Scan of the Presence of Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence in Health and Cancer Care Environments

Marcus Vaska
Grey literature has long been associated with technological enhancements, recognizing the power that informational communication, namely, social media, plays in generating interest in blogs, Twitter feeds, and other instantaneous knowledge exchange platforms. The ability of these programs to generate and identify specific data patterns1 from a single posting has led to increasing interest in two aspects of machine learning in health care, namely Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Virtual Reality (VR).1 AI “mimics elements of human...

AccessGrey: Securing Open Access to Grey Literature for Science and Society

Dominic Farace, Jerry Frantzen, Stefania Biagioni, Carlo Carlesi, Antonella De Robbio, Ana Češarek, Cees de Blaaij, Kiyoshi Ikeda & June Crowe
Persistent identifiers such as a DOI for a publication and an ORCiD for an author/researcher can be approached from both the demand-side as well as supply-side of information. It appears however that the former attracts more attention. Here emphasis lies in the access to and preservation of research output. Yet, it is on the supply-side regarding the acquisition of research output that persistent identifiers may by the same token have influence in identifying and populating...

Improving guidelines for video abstracts: An analysis of the most popular videos abstracts in the TIB AV Portal

Margret Plank & Jens Kösters
Today, more and more scientific videos are published online. One visual format that seems particularly suitable for communicating scientific content is the video abstract. This is the 3-5 minutes long moving image equivalent of a written abstract. With this format, scientists have the opportunity to explain the results and background of their concrete research work as well as the methods used, the study results, and possible implications to a potentially larger audience. Recently, some studies...

Burning Grey: The Worldwide influence of a Locally Published Grey Literature

Vince Ervin Palcullo & Daryl Superio
Rice is a major staple crop in the Philippines, which produces a large amount of rice each year. On the other hand, rice production generates biomass waste in the form of rice husks. In consideration of the rice husks’ potential as a biomass energy source and support the development of the rice husk gas stove technology in the Philippines, Engineer Alexis T. Belonio had published a grey literature (GL) entitled “Rice Husk Gas Stove Handbook.”...

Going Green – Publishing Academic Grey Literature in Laboratory Collections on HAL

Joachim Schopfel, El Hadji Ibrahima Ndiaye & Helene Prost
HAL is the national open repository for documents and data from French scientists. The deposits are organized in institutional portals and collections from research laboratories and projects. The paper analyses how grey literature is represented in the collections of French research laboratories on HAL. We assess the grey literature deposits on HAL from the 66 research laboratories affiliated to the University of Lille, covering all STM and SSH fields. The focus is on conference papers,...

Grey Literature Resources generate and drive Awareness to a Circular Economy: An Explorative Research Project

Dominic Farace & Jerry Frantzen
In September 2019, the first seminar of its kind dealt with grey literature and a circular economy i.e., an economic system aimed at eliminating waste and the continual use of resources. The information compiled in advance of that seminar and the interest shown by the participants provide the lead-up to this study. Grey literature resources are a significant part of the information industry and like other industries in a circular economy such as textile, construction,...

Legal Issues Surrounding the Collection, Use and Access to Grey Data in the University Setting: How Data Policies Reflect the Political Will of Organizations

Tomas Lipinski & Katherine Henderson
Grey literature is defined as works that are of sufficient importance to be collected and preserved by the library or its affiliated institutional repository. These works are disseminated through channels other than commercial publishing and are generally protected by intellectual property. Intellectual property schemes offer less protection to grey literature’s frequent companion, grey data, even though the collector/researcher and his/her home institution may nonetheless consider the data valuable and proprietary (Schöpfel andLipinski, 2012). Grey data...

Grey Literature in Open Repositories: New Insights and New Issues

Joachim Schopfel, Eric kergosien, Helene Prost & Florence Thiault
HAL is the national open repository for documents and data from French scientists. The paper analyses how grey literature is represented on HAL. It presents original empirical results from a follow-up study to former research, based on the scientometric assessment of deposits on the French national HAL repository by more than 1,200 research laboratories. These laboratories are affiliated to ten large French research universities and cover the whole range of scientific domains. We assessed the...

Video is the new Grey

Bastian Drees & Margret Plank
Conference reports are a crucial source of information as they document the current state of research in a scientific community. Additionally, it is becoming more and more common practice to record and publish conference talks. These videos are an important element of contemporary scientific output. However, no sustainable standard has yet been established for handling these media types. While libraries have well-established procedures for collecting textual conference reports as part of the grey literature, comparable...

Open Data engages Citation and Reuse: A Follow-up Study on Enhanced Publication

Dominic Farace, Jerry Frantzen & Joachim Schopfel
In 2011, GreyNet embarked on an Enhanced Publications Project (EPP) in order to link its collection of full text conference papers with accompanying research data. The initial phase in the study dealt with the design and implementation of an online questionnaire among authors, who were published in the International Conference Series on Grey Literature. From 2012 onwards, subsequent phases in the project dealt with the acquisition, submission, indexing, and archiving of GreyNet’s collection of published...
