"That which is produced on all levels of government, academics, business and industry in print and electronic formats, but which is not controlled by commercial publishers." - The Fourth International Conference on Grey Literature, October 1999
White Papers are a type of authoritative reporting that fall under the grey literature umbrella. They typically cover governmental, social, or consumer issues. White papers are prepared by governmental agencies, professional organizations, public policy and research organizations, and commercial enterprises. By definition, they are based upon an exhaustive research process and frequently address new, controversial or developing trends, programs, or products.
"Think tanks are organizations that have significant autonomy from governmental interests and that synthesize, create, or disseminate information, ideas, or advice to the public, policymakers, other organizations, and the press."
