Full text Presentation Presentation


OpenGrey is based on the OpenSIGLE/SIGLE database which contains almost 700 thousand records of grey literature. OpenGrey is a unique repository providing open access to European grey literature references, the result of 25 years of cooperation. As a multidisciplinary database it covers Science, Technology, Biomedical Science, Economics, Social Science and Humanities. This paper presents new search functionality, design and vision. The cooperation with GreyNet on GL conference preprints will also be mentioned. OpenGrey usage data and feedback information support our advocacy for more grey literature in repositories. Cooperation example will be shown in the National Repository of Grey Literature in the Czech Republic.
