Accessgrey: securing open access to grey literature for science and society
Farace D., Frantzen J., Biagioni S., Carlesi C., De Robbio A., Cesarek A., De Blaaij C., Ikeda K., Crowe J.
Persistent identifiers such as a DOI1 for a publication and an ORCiD2 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 prospective data archives and repositories. This study will look at the influence persistent identifiers have in securing the acquisition of grey literature for public access. The goal of this project is twofold. First, to carry out a survey within the grey literature community as to the opinions, uses, and applications of persistent identifiers. And second, to initiate a project geared to populate a new collection housed in the GreyGuide Repository3 by using the DOI as an incentive. Resources in Grey Literature (RGL) is as a generic, multidisciplinary collection that will serve for this purpose. Using GreyNet's distribution channels and social media, stakeholders in the field of grey literature are invited to enter one or more of their publications in the RGL collection. Each new entry will receive a DOI minted by GreyNet International and further stored and preserved in the DataCite registry4. Also, a system generated citation will be added to each new entry in order to facilitate record use. The types of grey literature documents eligible for entry in the RGL collection are numerous5. Brief guidelines for record entry require that it be self-archived using the existing online-template and that both the metadata record and accompanying full-text document(s) are in English. An additional descriptive field does allow for entry in another language. And, a translation of the document can also be uploaded in the repository. Finally, it is understood that by submitting the metadata record and file(s), they become open access compliant under Creative Commons license CC-BY-SA6. The initial phase of the project commenced in April 2019 and closed in October 2019. Records harvested during this period along with the results of the survey will be analyzed in its second phase. In the final phase, the project's outcome will be published. Results should indicate whether the AccessGrey Project be extended to other collections in the GreyGuide, and if this project would be of value to other communities of practice in the field of grey literature.Source: 21st International Conference on Grey Literature: Open Science Encompasses New Forms of Grey Literature, GL 2019, pp. 89–96, Hannover, Germany, 22-23 October, 2019

Semantic Query Analysis from the Global Science Gateway
Goggi S., Pardelli G., Bartolini R., Monachini M., Biagioni S., Carlesi C.
Nowadays web portals play an essential role in searching and retrieving information in the several fields of knowledge: they are ever more technologically advanced and designed for supporting the storage of a huge amount of information in natural language originating from the queries launched by users worldwide. Given this scenario, we focused on building a corpus constituted by the query logs registered by the GreyGuide: Repository and Portal to Good Practices and Resources in Grey Literature and received by the WorldWideScience.org (The Global Science Gateway) portal: the aim is to retrieve information related to social media which as of today represent a considerable source of data more and more widely used for research ends.Source: The Grey journal (Print) 15 (2019): 147–155.

Semantic query analysis from the global science gateway
Goggi S., Pardelli G., Bartolini R., Monachini M., Biagioni S., Carlesi C.
We focused on building a corpus constituted by the query logs registered by the GreyGuide: Repository and Portal to Good Practices and Resources in Grey Literature and received by the WorldWideScience.org (The Global Science Gateway) portal: the aim is to retrieve information related to social media which as of today represent a considerable source of data more and more widely used for research ends. This project includes eight months of query logs3 registered between July 2017 and February 2018 for a total of 445,827 queries. The analysis mainly concentrates on the semantics of the queries received from the portal clients: it is a process of information retrieval from a rich digital catalogue whose language is dynamic, is evolving and follows - as well as reflects - the cultural changes of our modern society.Source: Twentieth International Conference on Grey Literature "Research Data Fuels and Sustains Grey Literature", pp. 93–95, New Orleans, USA (Loyola University), December 3-4, 2018

GreyGuide Repository and Portal: Advancements and Impact Assessment 5 Years on!
Farace D., Biagioni S., Carlesi C.
In 2013, GreyNet International and the Institute of Information Science and Technologies of the National Research Council of Italy began work on the construction of the GreyGuide repository, which would house works of good practice in the field of grey literature. This joint venture soon expanded and came to also serve as GreyNet's Web Access Portal. Now five years on ISTI-CNR - the service provider and GreyNet International - a content provider openly discuss their return on investments in human and information resources. The presentation concludes with an impact assessment and further course of action.Source: 11th Conference on Grey Literature and Repositories, National Library of Technology, Prague, CZ, 24/10/2018

Policy Development for Grey Literature Resources: An Assessment of the Pisa Declaration
Savic D., Farace D., Frantzen J., Biagioni S., Carlesi C., Gruttemeier H., Stock C.
In the spring of 2014, a workshop took place at the Italian National Council of Research in Pisa1. The topic of this event dealt with policy development for grey literature resources. Some seventy participants from nine countries took an active part in the workshop - the outcome of which produced what is today known as the Pisa Declaration2. This fifteen point document arising from the input of those who attended the workshop sought to provide a roadmap that would help to serve diverse communities involved in research, publication and the management of grey literature both in electronic and print formats. The Pisa Declaration has been translated and published in some twenty languages. They are all accessible online via the GreyGuide Repository3 and Portal4. Currently, 140 information professionals from renowned organizations worldwide have endorsed this document5. In an effort to assess the impact that the Pisa Declaration has had during the last two years on the policy development for grey literature resources, an online survey among those who endorsed the document was carried out and their responses were analysed. Descriptive statistics and short summaries are used to describe the basic features of the data collected. They are combined with simple graphics that offer easier visual representation of the results achieved. Specific results of the survey analysis indicate those points in the Pisa Declaration that in varying degrees are of relevance and importance to grey literature, as well as points that need further attention and work. Although integral part of library and information management practice grey literature has its own peculiarities and needs that require special attention in order to reach its deserved level of importance in today's research and other activities.Source: GL18 - Eighteenth International Conference on Grey Literature: Leveraging Diversity in Grey Literature., pp. 97–108, New York, USA, 28-29 November 2016

Leveraging Grey Literature - Capitalizing on Value and the Return on Investment: A Cumulative Case Study.
Farace D., Frantzen J., Biagioni S., Carlesi C., Stock C.
Leveraging grey literature not only seeks to capitalize on its value for science and the public good, but also anticipates a return on investments in some measure. In an attempt to assess GreyNet's return on investment in grey literature, this study identifies and reviews efforts made to leverage its own information products and services, since its relaunch in 2003. The method of approach is a cumulative case study from 2003 onwards of a select number of information products and services provided by GreyNet. Each were introduced to serve the interests of the grey literature community and their production and supply remain sustained. The first step in the study provides a brief description of GreyNet's types of stakeholders and the nine selected resources intended to serve the grey literature community. Available statistics and data corresponding to the resources are also incorporated here. The second step is the design and implementation of an online survey among GreyNet stakeholders in an effort to determine their involvement. And, in the third and final step an analysis is carried out as to the observed uses of the information resources in step one with the results of the survey conducted among GreyNet stakeholders in step two. Results from this study seek to establish an accepted level of disparity among the intended purposes, observed uses, and the involvement of stakeholders. The outcome hopes to better enable GreyNet to leverage its information resources - ensuring its positional advantage and enabling it to function more effectively.Source: Seventeenth International Conference on Grey Literature.

GreyGuide, GreyNet's web access portal and lobby for change in Grey Literature
Farace D., Frantzen J., Biagioni S., Carlesi C., Ponti R., Stock C.
In December 2013, the GreyGuide was formerly launched as an online forum and repository of good practice in grey literature. The project partners then turned to the acquisition of both proposed and published good practices. During this same timeframe, GreyNet- one of the project partners - welcomed far reaching developments in its infrastructure. Three new committees were established in line with its fourfold mission dedicated to research, publication, open access, and education in the field of grey literature. In the process of coordinating and facilitating the work of these new committees, it became clear that a multitude of web-based content, which is currently maintained on GreyNet's website and conference site- accessible on diverse webpages in PDFG format - could better be made accessible via a web portal. This would allow for browse, search, and retrieval across collections. The GreyGuide was tested for this purpose and it was then decided to select and migrate content to the GreyGuide. While the web origins of three such collections were soon identified - namely, the GreySource Index, Who's Who in Grey Literature, Conference Proposals issuing from the GL-Series - still other collections, resources, and in-house publications would also deserve future consideration. The work of defining the metadata for these collections, their subsequent data entry, and additional cross-linking indicate the work that will be undertaken during the months leading up GL16. It was anticipated that just as GL15 provided the occasion for the launch of the GreyGuide Repository, GL16 would demonstrate its enhanced function as a web access portal. From the perspective of the GreyGuide, this paper renders an ongoing log, while from the perspective of GreyNet it renders a case study in innovative change in management of information resources.Source: The Grey journal (Print) 11 (2015): 25–31.

GreyGuide - Guide to Good Practice in Grey Literature: A Community Driven Open Resource Project
Biagioni S., Carlesi C., Schopfel J., Farace D., Frantzen J.
The goal of this project is to develop an open source repository of good practices in the field of grey literature. That which originated in monographic formwill now open and expand to include content from the global grey literature community. Such practices will range from the production and processing of grey literature through to its distribution, uses, and preservation. The repository will contain guidelines such as those in handling theses and dissertations, how to write research reports, metadata required for working papers as well as good practices in the subject areas of agriculture, health, education, energy, environment, et cetera. The purpose of an online repository of good practice in grey literature will provide the many stakeholders in government, academics, business and industry with the benefits of experience, sustained management, and proven results. The procedure initially applied in this project deals with the design and development of a template that will capture data and information about published as well as proposed good practices within a standard format. While the metadata captured in the template are indeed standardized, their accompanying fulltext documents need not be. Furthermore, the template seeks to identify intended users of a good practice, as well as metadata that will facilitate the search and retrieval of records in the repository. Technical developments related to the design and construction of the repository, its eventual platform as well as its maintenance are other related issues addressed in the project. While there are no direct costs associated with the project, each partner is committed to allocate human and material resources needed to carry out their related tasks. It is expected that the initial phase in acquiring records for the repository will rely on channels available through the Grey Literature Network Service. Populating the repository will be somewhat timeconsuming and the first harvest will not produce an abundance of records. The project is long term; however it is all the more worthwhile. The GreyGuide will provide a unique resource in the field of grey literature that is long awaited and which responds to the information needs of a diverse, international grey literature community.Source: GL15 - Fifteenth International Conference on Grey Literature.

Such practices will range from the production and processing of grey literature through to its distribution, uses, and preservation.Source: FEDLINK 2013 Fall Expo - Accessing Information in a Changing Federal Environment, Library of Congress, Washington D.C., USA, 6 Novembre 2013
