ERIC Releases Journal and Non-Journal Source Lists



ERIC has released the lists of journals and non-journal sources approved for active indexing. All of the listed journal titles and non-journal sources meet the standard and criteria of the revised ERIC Selection Policy

The lists include 904 journal sources and 712 non-journal sources that were previously indexed in ERIC, as well as 20 new journals and 118 new non-journal sources. Many of these new sources are open access and will allow full text to be displayed in ERIC. They represent research from school districts, university research centers, non-profit organizations, and research and technical assistance centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education. 

To develop these lists, ERIC worked with its Collection Advisory Group, as detailed in the Selection Policy. The team considered a variety of factors during the source review, with the primary consideration being the source’s adherence to the Selection Policy. The majority of the sources that will no longer be indexed were removed because the content was not education research, as defined in the Selection Policy. The team also considered whether the sources produce content on a regular basis, the ease of obtaining full text for searchers, and whether content is peer reviewed. Previously indexed records from sources that are no longer active will remain in the collection.

You can find the links to the lists of active journals and non-journals in the footer of the ERIC website. Click the title or source name to return all records indexed in ERIC for that source. If you retrieve an empty result set, ERIC has not yet received materials for indexing from that source.

Travelers to ancient Babylon were met with an astonishing sight: a gate nearly 50 feet high and 100 feet wide made of jewel-like blue glazed bricks and adorned with bas-relief dragons and young bulls. Dedicated to Ishtar, goddess of fertility, love, and war, the main entrance to the city was constructed for King Nebuchadnezzar II circa 575 BCE.

Artstor is sharing 101 images of artworks by Louis Henri Jean Charlot (1898–1979) from the Jean Charlot Collection at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa.
Charlot’s output of drawings, paintings, murals, prints, sculptures, illustrations and cartoons, as well as books, articles, and other writings was prodigious. Wherever he lived—whether in France, Mexico, New York, Georgia, Colorado, Hawai‘i or Fiji—his life was full of significant connections with artists and writers, indigenous and working people, influential figures in art and educational institutions, and the Roman Catholic Church. He preserved the records of his encounters, together with those of his own creative and scholarly life, in the original artworks, archival documents, research photographs, audiovisual materials, memorabilia and the publications of his personal library that became the basis of the Jean Charlot Collection.
