ERIC is an online digital library of education research and information. ERIC is sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education.
The ERIC collection includes annotated bibliographic records (citations, abstracts, and other pertinent data) for more than 1.2 million items indexed since 1966, including:
* journal articles
* research syntheses
* conference papers
* technical reports
* policy papers, and
* other education-related materials
ERIC currently indexes more than 600 journals, the majority of which are indexed comprehensively ? every article in each issue is included in ERIC. Some journals are indexed selectively ? only those articles that are education-related are selected for indexing.
