Education Resources Information Center (ERIC)
ERIC is an online research database for educational research and information. ERIC provides a collection of over 1.2 million peer-reviewed journals, books, newspapers, conference papers, policy papers, education documents, and other educational-related materials.
Journal records contain information such as author, title, date, journal citation, publisher, abstract, and sometimes you can even read the full-text in PDF format. More journal articles are becoming available in full view for free via this website as they are working with publishers to make these articles available to you via The Internet.
If a journal article is not available in full-text, ERIC will provide you with a list of libraries that may have this article and will also provide you the publisher information and website to find it as well.
ERIC offers other great features as well such as:
- Basic and advanced searches
- A thesaurus
- MyERIC allows you to keep track of your searches, manages your citations, and even permits you to submit your own reference articles as well. This feature requires you to set up a username and password that is of no cost to you.
This is particularly a great online research database for teachers, administrators, professors, parents, education researchers, and of course students.
