Education Resources Information Center (ERIC) is now searchable as a WilsonWeb database.

ERIC, sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education, allows the searching of 1.1 million bibliographic citations and more than 100,000 full-text entries on education topics dating back to 1966. The material covers journal articles, books, research syntheses, conference papers, technical reports, policy papers, reports from the What Works Clearinghouse, and other education-related materials. More than 600 journals are indexed by the database.

ERIC on Wilson Web offers:

--Seamless searching with Education Full Text, Education Index Retrospective, Social Sciences Full Text, and other WilsonWeb databases. Search results are fully integrated.

--Cross-references to Wilson’s education subject thesaurus.

--WilsonWeb’s "All Smart" search with relevance ranking that accounts for the importance of the field in which the search term is found (subject, title, abstract, author, or full text).

--Full-text translations, including electronic conversions of articles into Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

--Saved searches and search histories. The My WilsonWeb profiles allow users to create and manage saved searches, search histories, and more.

--Content Discovery Keys in search results; links launch related searches, allow users to narrow results by author, subject, publication, year, document type, and database, or to select previous searches from the Recent Searches listing.

The ERIC database is offered free on WilsonWeb to Education Full Text and Wilson OmniFile subscribers. ERIC is also available as a subscription with an annual fee.

H.W. Wilson,
