Unpublished studies

Scope: use to index descriptions of this information type, collections of unpublished information, how to identify unpublished studies or investigations of the contribution of unpublished material as an information type. Use where the tag ‘grey literature’ does not reflect or capture this information type because it is genuinely unpublished, perhaps because it is referred to by a third party or represents a conference presentation without an accessible abstract
