Please excuse any duplication:

The New York Academy of Medicine's September Grey Literature Report has been published today. You can find it at: http://www.greylit.org/reports/current

This report's main focus is on the recently passed Affordable Care Act and its implications to the health community, with a secondary focus on Child Health.

The Academy started producing the Grey Literature Report in 1999 to make accessible material beyond peer-reviewed journal articles and published books in the public health research literature. Produced by foundations, think-tanks, advocacy groups, government agencies, and academic institutions, grey literature offers timely, statistical analysis for state-of-the-art research. Grey literature offers a unique perspective for the research community, because government agencies and think tanks produce reports that effect policy and the people who implement policy.

In general, grey literature publications are non-conventional, fugitive, and sometimes ephemeral publications. They may include, but are not limited to: fact sheets, technical reports, white papers, statistical reports, market research, workshop summaries, and dissertations. Most grey literature is freely accessible through the World Wide Web. The New York Academy of Medicine's Grey Literature reports are produced every two months and provide a portal to this literature. You can subscribe to the reports here: http://www.nyam.org/library/grey-literature-report-form.html.
