ERIC, the major education database, published by the US government, has decided to limit its indexing and full-text to scholarly journals and reports. This means they will no longer include trade journals, newsletters or magazines that include articles that simply describe the authors’ experiences in classrooms or are news items (Education Week, The Chronicle of Higher Education.) We are considering adding Education Research Complete to make up for those losses. Do you feel this additional resource will be useful in your classes or for your students? (We will NOT stop our subscription to ERIC. This would serve to enhance, not replace, ERIC.)
