Finding Articles

ERIC database logo    EBSCOHost Logo  CQ Researcher Logo  ProQuest Logo

Search ERIC for journal articles and non-journal literature (documents) in Education.

  • For a more precise search, use the online thesaurus for vocabulary to represent the concepts of your research topic.
  • Place each unique concept in a separate row. Use AND to connect concepts (for example, bilingual education AND qualitative research). Both concepts will be present in your results.
  • Search separately for journal articles and non-journal literature by limiting your results to journal articles (EJ) or to documents (ED).
  • Limit your results to peer reviewed for abstracts from scholarly publications.

Other selected databases with scholarly journal articles on educational topics include:
