Collapse Subdiscussion Kristen Lins

You made some good points in your discussion post. My question to you is, do you think it is ethical to use non-peer-reviewed sources in scholarly writing? Do you think there are any types of non-peer-reviewed sources that can be used in a scholarly paper to appropriately and effectively support the intended topic? What are your thoughts? Were the sources you listed peer-reviewed? I was unable to find the links to the articles to review them myself. If not, do you think they are still valuable to use in writing about your topic in the final paper?

Grey or gray literature is material and research by mental or physical effort, by organizations outside of traditional commercial or academic distribution or publishing channels. Examples of gray literature are reports that are annual, technical, project reports, and research reports.
How and why do win-win strategies work in engaging policymakers to implement Health in All Policies? A multiple-case study of six state- and national-level governments.
Much of this work on Health in All Policies (HIAP) implementation is descriptive and there have been calls for more evidence to explain the successes and failures that have occurred. There were six-state and national level governments (California, Finland, Norway, Scotland, and Thailand) as cross-case studies. The results of the case study were to understand the two mechanisms of how and why win-win strategies build partnerships for HIAP implementation using shared language and the value of multiple outcomes (Kokkinen, Lauri 2019).

Influence seekers: The production of grey literature for policy and practice
The public policy relies on a plethora of information and not from the same sources all the time but from a diverse group of sources which include but not limited to briefings, reports, and legislation. Gray literature assists in making this information available as it produces outside scholarly or commercial information. The results of this research show that organizations are making a large investment in time and resources, often paid for through public funds, to produce an extensive and impressive display of content on a regular basis with the aim of influencing and informing policy decisions (Lawrence, Amanda 2017).

Where’s the data? Why, here it is!
People have become more interested in the education of astronomy since the turn of the century or last decade. Of course, Astronomy is a natural science that studies celestial objects and phenomena.It has turned into a more qualitative study than times past. Questions concerning the planetarian have moved from is the planetarian an effective teaching mechanism to why is the planetarian an effective teaching mechanism. Gray literature allows those planetarians who are not astronomy education researchers to provide their two cents on the matters (Shanks, Sharon 2019).

Gray literature is not peer-reviewed scholarly literature; however, it is still produced by those who normally will create scholarly articles and research on the same topics. It almost hard to distinguish between gray literature and peer-reviewed scholarly work as the information is sometimes spot-on. Gray literature is relevant to my research topic as it gives an opportunity for those who have provided information about servant leadership outside of church ministry. It is also important because it allows research on annual reports, communications, and cross-case studies so that research isn’t just confined to the world of the United States but abroad, giving different perspectives and outlooks on what a servant leader is or should be.
