Share Your Work in ERIC
May 16, 2011
For more than 40 years, education scholars and researchers have collaborated with ERIC to make their conference papers, research reports, dissertations and theses widely available within the education community. You are invited to continue this tradition. Contributing to ERIC is non-exclusive, and offers many benefits:
- Accessibility–ERIC is searched more than 13 million times per month by researchers worldwide through Internet search engines, the public website at www.eric.ed.gov, commercial database vendors, and various state and local education networks that provide access to ERIC.
- Professional Service–Thousands of researchers and educators have made it a priority to share their work through ERIC. Because ERIC is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, individuals who have received federal funding are especially encouraged to participate.
- Enduring Availability–If your work is in ERIC, you don't need to worry about updating your website or handling requests for reprints. Your work will remain available as full text in PDF format with a permanent URL.
- Non-exclusivity–Materials in ERIC remain your intellectual property. Because you do not transfer copyright to ERIC, you are free to seek publication in journals and other avenues.
Once your conference concludes, your research report is accepted, or your dissertation is sent for binding, we encourage you to take a few more minutes to submit your substantive education-related works to www.eric.ed.gov/submit.
