In this page, the acronym "GR-EFT" stands form "effective (quantum) field theory of general relativity".

Original Work

Scale of Quantum Gravity, Tao Han, Scott Willenbrock
An article "deriving" the breakdown scale of GR-EFT.

The Holographic Entropy Bound and Local Quantum Field Theory, Ulvi Yurtsever
An interesting attempt towards "obtaining(?)" the area law of entropy for black holes from QFT.

Reviews

John F. Donoghue is one of the leading experts on the subject of GR-EFT. His review Introduction to the Effective Field Theory Description of Gravity is one of the oldest reviews (yet still very relevant) on this topic that I could find so far. A much more recent recent review by the same author is The effective field theory treatment of quantum gravity.

Quantum Gravity in Everyday Life: General Relativity as an Effective Field Theory by Cliff Burgess. This review also appears in the Living Reviews: [1].

A pedagogical explanation for the non-renormalizability of gravity by Assaf Shomer.

Notes

I found some interesting and relevant notes by Jesse Thaler, a leading quantum field theorist. One is on Gravity and Uniterity and the other one is on Lorentz-Violating Dynamics.

Jaques Distler has a blog entries on this topic, here.
