Grey Literature Versus Academic Literature in Software Engineering: A Call for Epistemological Analysis

Vahid Garousi, Austen Rainer
2020 IEEE Software  
Acknowledgements: The authors would like to thank the anonymous reviewers for their insightful comments.  ...  A recent IEEE Software paper [15] studied how software engineers form their opinions and found that personal experience ranked highest in terms of the source of knowledge.  ...  Such materials are collectively referred to as "Grey Literature" (GL). GL constitutes material that is published without the academic peer-review processes.  ...
