ERIC

Subject Area: 
Availability: 
Description: 

ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) provides free access to more than 1.2 million bibliographic records of journal articles and other education-related materials and, if available, includes links to full text. ERIC is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences (IES).

The ERIC collection includes bibliographic records (citations, abstracts, and other pertinent data) for more than 1.2 million items indexed since 1966, including:

  • journal articles
  • books
  • 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.

In addition, contributors have given ERIC permission to display more than 115,000 full-text materials in PDF format - at no charge. These materials are generally part of the recent "grey literature" such as conference papers and reports, rather than journal articles and books. Most materials published 2004 and forward include links to other sources, including publishers' Web sites. (from the website)

See "What's In ERIC?" for more details.

Notes: 

The ERIC database is available from various providers, as well as the public website. These providers recognize Trent users and include the Get It Trent! link to full text articles.

HighWire Press

Availability: 
Description: 

As the leading ePublishing platform, HighWire (a division of the Stanford University Libraries) partners with independent scholarly publishers, societies, associations, and university presses to facilitate the digital dissemination of journals.

Some of the journals are available by subscription only and Trent subscribes to many of these.

Notes: 

Trent does not subscribe to the all HighWire Press e-journals; hence you may get results that include pay-per-view articles when you use the search engine. Please keep in mind that you have the option of ordering those articles through Trent's Interlibrary Loan system without a charge. Also, check our E-Journals A-Z to find out if we have access from another site.

You can even use the "Related Articles" feature to find other articles that have cited the same articles. Want to know who's citing your work? Do a "Cited References" search. For more information, see our webpage on Cited Reference Searching - Web of Science.
