Grey Literature in Multicultural Women's & Gender Studies (MWGS) Research

This guide will help provide information about grey literature and resources to find grey literature that can be helpful in MWGS research.

University Repositories and other Open Education Resources

Graduate theses and doctoral dissertations held in university repositories and other Open Educational Resources (OER) are forms of grey literature and can be great sources of research to build upon.  Although these types of papers don't go through the official peer-reviewed process, they still go through a rigorous process of review and editing by a faculty advisor or committee and are produced by students and faculty all around the world. 

You can locate pieces from TWU students and faculty by searching the Repository @ TWU. Here you'll also find other pieces of grey literature, such as past conferences, Open Educational Resources, and a portion of the digital archives which include yearbooks and more.
