ERIC documents (or ED citations) are materials such as technical reports, curricular materials, and conference presentations found in the ERIC database. They vary in length from a few pages to well over 100 pages. In late 2015, ERIC is considering extending the peer-review designation to ERIC documents. The ERIC database also contains EJ citations, which are articles from journals or periodicals in education.
To locate ERIC documents, use the library database called ERIC (EBSCO). To get to the ERIC (EBSCO) database, click on the "Research Databases A-Z" link located under the OneSearch! tab on the library homepage. Scroll down the alphabetical list and click on the title to access the database.
There is a limit option under the heading "Journal or Document". Click "Documents (ED)" to limit your search to ERIC documents.
The full text of many ERIC Documents is available online through the ERIC database or other channels. In the ERIC search results list, look for the "Full Text from ERIC Available Online" link located below the article citation. Click on the link to go to the full text. Next, click on the pdf "Download full text" link to view the entire document.
