ERIC Partnership Brings More Education Dissertation Records Into the ERIC Collection
Mar. 01, 2011
As a result of a recently established partnership between the ERIC Program and ProQuest, ERIC has begun indexing education-related doctoral dissertations from 700 leading academic institutions worldwide. More than 1,700 recent records from the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Database have already been added to the ERIC Collection. More are added each day. As the project expands, records will reach back to 1997, the year digital copies of dissertations were first acquired.
Researchers and practitioners who search the ERIC Collection at www.eric.ed.gov (or through such services as Google, EBSCO, CSA, Dialog, or state and local education networks) can now discover the latest dissertations and theses in their areas of interest. Upon identifying a potentially useful dissertation in the ERIC Collection, they may use the Publisher's website link to see a preview or order the dissertation from ProQuest. Full-text availability is dependent on the ProQuest subscription type in place at the searcher's institution.
Individuals who wish to find out about the latest dissertation literature related to a particular education topic will find it easy to set up an ERIC RSS feed to learn about new content matching their criteria.
