West of England AHSN launches grey literature evidence repository
3 June 2020
The West of England Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) has launched an evidence repository to allow their members and key partners to share grey literature, including COVID-19 reports.
Grey literature in the repository are documents created to inform local service design and commissioning, including evidence reviews and evaluation reports. These documents may be available on organisational websites but are often only stored internally. The evidence repository aims to reduce duplication by facilitating the sharing of this literature. As grey literature is not peer-reviewed, it is not suitable for public access.
The repository is hosted in a FutureNHS Collaboration Platform Workspace. To learn more about using the evidence repository you can join an online training session on 16 June from 10 to 11am (Meeting ID: 941 3329 1537 and Password: 464516). The training, led by the AHSN, will show attendees the workspace and how to search, download and upload documents.
