Welcome to GreyLit
The Future of Knowledge Mobilization
Through the use of both natural language processing and artificial intelligence, GreyLit’s global web-based repository expands open access to frontline, under-utilized research, allowing information to become action years or months earlier than traditional channels.
Organizations work with GreyLit to create internal repositories of their frontline information and research, bridging the gap between research and practice. This knowledge mobilization allows an organization’s research to be easily and continually searched, shared and reviewed by all chosen colleagues, partners and funders. With transparent, real-time peer reviews, organizations can share their research ahead of the curve and provide metrics and impact measurement to secure more funds.
Organizations upload their research without format or content restrictions. The research is then immediately shared with all chosen True Peers—colleagues, partners, funders, etc. These peers then evaluate the research, creating a valuable, quick feedback loop. In addition, discoveries from one research team often complement and/or accelerate the work and impact of ongoing projects in other divisions, departments and fellow organizations.
Emerging trends in research and funding strongly indicate that rapid turnaround, research analytics and proof of impact are of growing and vital importance. GreyLit’s analytics capture the impact of every article published, i.e. who read the research, where they live, work, and study, what sectors their research impacts and more. This information is delivered to the research author, helping them prove their work is generating both knowledge and impact. In addition, GreyLit fully embraces and meets the growing global requirements of open access.
GreyLit is the brainchild of public health epidemiologist Cora Cole, based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. GreyLit is born out of her frustration between the knowledge of frontline health researchers and their inability to share mission-critical information and best practices with peers in a timely fashion.
How GreyLit Can Help You
GreyLit can help hospitals make decisions better and faster, and become a leader in both research and patient care. Most hospital departments store their grey literature such as policies, guidelines, best practices, evaluations and protocols on shared drives. Some of these important decision making documents are shared through interdisciplinary committees, a newsletter or maybe even on a specific department’s internal web page.
GreyLit can help cities and municipalities make decisions better and faster, and become a leader in both policy and programming. Most municipalities budget time and money to research, review and consult on a number of significant topics that are important to its citizens.
GreyLit can help you share valuable information and provides your members with a customized open access platform. Most professional associations produce a lot of grey literature like policies, guidelines, evaluations and project reports to name a few. Often these documents are highly valuable to your members as they will use them to inform their work, shape critical paths, and influence action.
“GreyLit provides a forum to publish and share research that would otherwise remain sequestered. With the inclusion of non-peer-reviewed research, GreyLit is the go-to source of up-to-date information for researchers, students and industry alike. ”

Your Introduction to Open Access
by Cora Cole, Founder & CEO, GreyLit
We all suffer from the dreaded FOMO, or “fear of missing out”. We all fear the possibility that we may not be familiar with current advances being made in our area of interest. We all fear not being able to answer fundamental questions regarding a new policy or reporting requirement. We all worry that, if we are not up to date and have not consumed all the information that is out there, we will not be serving our patients, clients, subordinates or our organization to the fullest.
