ERIC Selection Policy
The ERIC Selection Policy establishes the standards and criteria for selecting materials for inclusion in the ERIC collection. It states broad collection goals and defines the standards and criteria required of approved sources and individual materials in the ERIC digital library. The purpose of the selection policy is to provide consistency in the approach for reviewing and selecting sources and individual items, and clearly communicate policy and process to staff, users, publishers, and individual submitters of material.

This policy goes into effect in January 2018 and applies to new materials added to ERIC. No previously published records in ERIC will be removed as a result of this selection policy.

The following list of journals and non-journals are approved to be indexed in ERIC. New sources will be reviewed for inclusion based on the new selection policy twice a year.
