ALERT regarding full-text access to ERIC Documents

ERIC - the Education Resources Information Center - is an online digital library of education research and information. ERIC is sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education. ERIC provides ready access to education literature to support the use of educational research and information to improve practice in learning, teaching, educational decision-making, and research.

The following information affects only those using the open web ERIC site; it does not affect journal articles found during an ERIC (via Ebsco) database search.

According to the ERIC website:

If you see "Download Full Text" in the grey box to right after you search, then ERIC has permission for you to download the article for free. To only see these articles, make sure the "Full text available on ERIC" box is checked when you search.

"PDF Release Pending" means that the document is temporarily unavailable due to concerns about personally identifiable information in some of our older documents.

If you do not see either option, it means that ERIC does not have permission to release that document. You can get access through your local or university library.

The article I want says “PDF Release Pending”. What does that mean?
“PDF Release Pending” means that we are unable to release that document electronically at this time due to concerns about personally identifiable information in some of our older, non-peer reviewed documents. We are currently analyzing each document and will be returning documents to ERIC on an ongoing basis over the next few months. In the meantime, the articles may be able to be retrieved through interlibrary loan and via microfiche.


Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan is a service which obtains, from other libraries, research materials that are not available in the University Libraries' collections.

If you have not done so already, register for interlibrary loan -- ILLiad
