Share Your Research with Millions
May 03, 2010
The 2010 American Educational Research Association meeting may be over, but opportunities to share your work with others are just beginning.
For more than 40 years, conference presenters have collaborated with ERIC to make their papers widely available. Contributing to ERIC costs nothing and offers many benefits:
High visibility- ERIC is searched more than 10 million times per month through Google and other Internet search engines, the public website at www.eric.ed.gov, commercial database vendors such as EBSCO and CSA, and various state and local education networks that provide access to ERIC. Professional contribution- 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. Ongoing 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 no further effort on your part. Retained copyright- Materials in ERIC continue to be your property. Because you do not transfer copyright to ERIC, you are free to seek publication in journals and other avenues.
Play your part in the tradition of improving education practice. Submit your research and/or other substantive education-related works to www.eric.ed.gov/submit.
