ERIC the Educational Resources Information Centre
ERIC is a specialist education research resource, an open access bibliographic database of general education research. It indexes many specialist publications including valuable reports and similar grey literature, research not easily found elsewhere.
ERIC indexes education journals, the majority of which are peer-reviewed. Most of these journals are indexed comprehensively - that is, a record for every article in each issue is included in ERIC. Some journals are indexed selectively - that is, only those articles that are education-related are selected for indexing.
Reports and grey literature: ERIC indexes education-related materials from a variety of sources, including scholarly organizations, professional associations, research centers, policy organizations, university presses, the U.S. Department of Education and other federal agencies, and state and local agencies. Individual contributors submit conference papers, research papers, dissertations, and theses.
