21st International Conference on Grey Literature 2019
October 22, 2019 - October 23, 2019Free
For more than a quarter century, grey Literature communities have explored ways to open science to other methods of reviewing, publishing, and making valuable information resources publicly accessible. This Twenty-First International Conference on Grey Literature seeks to demonstrate how the principles of science and advancements in information technology have impacted the field of grey literature and in turn how grey literature by implementing these has contributed to the open science movement.
Open science is defined as the movement to make scientific research, data and dissemination accessible to all levels of an inquiring society. Grey literature by definition seeks to make publications produced on all levels of government, academics, and business openly accessible different from those controlled by commercial publishing. As such the open science movement incorporates the work carried out by grey literature communities and renders an even broader framework encompassing newer forms of grey in both textual and non-textual formats.
Open science encompasses the life and physical sciences as well the social sciences and humanities as does grey literature. Open science recognizes the value of grey literature in the process of knowledge generation and as such acknowledges contributions made by researchers, authors, and their communities of practice. Open science changes the way research is done and allows for convergence with the field of grey literature. It is within the open science movement that grey literature and its wealth of information resources are valued and properly exploited for society as a whole.
The 21st International Conference on Grey Literature (GL21) will take place on 22 and 23 October 2019 in the Leibnizhaus in Hannover. The event is organised by the TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology.
Under the motto “Open Science encompasses New Forms of Grey Literature”, the two-day English-language conference seeks to demonstrate how the principles of science and advancements in information technology have impacted the field of grey literature and in turn how grey literature by implementing these has contributed to the open science movement.
The term grey literature refers to publications such as conference proceedings, congress and research reports, unpublished university papers, expert reports, working papers and Diplom theses that cannot be obtained from bookshops. Grey literature from science and technology is one of the focus areas of the TIB. Amongst other things, TIB collects grey research reports and grey conference proceedings.
The program of the conference is now available.
Registration for the conference is open. The number of participants is limited. Participants from German libraries, universities and other academic institutions are free of charge. During the registration process, please enter the code “TIB 2019” in the “Method of Payment” field.
