Access to ERIC Full Text - June 2013 Update

Access to ERIC Full Text

Issue 16 - June 2013

Access to full text in the ERIC Collection continues to increase as restricted PDFs are cleared and restored online on a weekly basis, and newly indexed full-text materials are added daily. As of May 30, 2013 nearly 71,400 PDFs were available online for download, including all releasable materials published from 2005-forward and peer-reviewed full-text materials. 

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

New Topics Added to Collection Highlights
Visitors to ERIC’s Collection Highlights area can review the latest literature in 27 topics, including one recent addition to the website: Common Core Standards. Click the RSS icon
