    Synonym for "Knowledge item"

    Dear all,

    I am currently writing my dissertation, and I am looking for a synonym of the term "knowledge item".

    Some context: I have conducted a systematic review of academic and non-academic knowledge. As my review is not limited to "academic" search engines, I have identified not only peer-reviewed "articles", but also many other sources of knowledge, such as company web pages, company brochures, news paper articles, industry magazine articles etc.

    I am looking for an overarching term to refer to any of these different items/ pieces of knowledge. Currently, I am using "knowledge item". I was considering "knowledge fragment" and "knowledge piece", but was not truly convinced.

    I want to use the term in a manner like this: "40% of knowledge items say..."

    As I am not a native speaker, I was wondering whether somebody else could come up with a better alternative.

    I highly appreciate your support!

    Many thanks & cheers
    Fredenstein

    I'm wondering if "sources of information" might be more accurate than "sources of knowledge."
