Q. I have an ED number from the ERIC database. Is there a quick way to tell if it is available in full text?


Answer


ERIC (Education Resources Information Center) is an education database that is available through ASU Library's online subscription services, but a public version of ERIC is available at: http://eric.ed.gov

Note:  ERIC indexes educational journal articles as well as educational documents.  ERIC documents are assigned an ED number that is followed by 6 digits.

There is a quick way to search the public version (ERIC website) to determine whether it contains fulltext of the ERIC digest article / ERIC document.

  • Fill in the blank with the 6 digit ED number and use this URL:
    • http://files.eric.ed.gove/fulltext/ED______.pdf

Note: Sometimes authors do not give ERIC permission to post copies of their works, but you can check our ASU Library holdings for a copy of the work. It will not be listed by ED number, but as the actual work such as by title and author.
