ERIC database update

In the summer of 2012, ERIC, the education database, pulled down many of their full text materials due to privacy concerns that were raised about some of the information contained in several unpublished documents (read more here). Presently, staff at ERIC are continuing to work to restore all full text of these documents to the database. The most recent update from ERIC is pasted below.

ERIC Restores Online Access to Full Text from 2005-2013

ERIC has restored online access to more than 21,000 full-text PDFs with publication dates from 2005-2013.  These are documents and journal articles with permission to provide the full text that were previously restricted due to privacy concerns. Restrictions also have been lifted on the release of newly indexed, copyright-cleared full text with publication dates of 2005 or greater.

ERIC will continue to accept requests to restore access to older materials via the online form, and maintain the updated list of released documents (.xls spreadsheet). The Spotlight and alert areas on the ERIC home page at are kept up-to-date to keep you informed of the latest developments.
