When you perform a search in the ERIC database (available from the Education section of our Databases page), you will often find items identified with a number beginning with an "ED". These are Eric Documents. Do not confuse these with the ones identified with a number beginning with "EJ", which are journal articles. Eric documents are not peer reviewed and are not journal articles.

If you get the above message, you can request a pdf from the ERIC people. You can also try to request the item via Document Delivery (request these as if they were books). We no longer have copies of the ERIC documents in microfiche.
