Our mission

FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Status of ERIC

ERIC (AKA, “Education Resources Information Center”) of the Department of Education has an announcement of limitations of its new web site during the transition from the old web site.

  • Note from the Commissioner, Ruth Curran Neild, Commissioner of the National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance Institute of Education Sciences.

    As ERIC transitions into a new contract cycle … there will be a delay in indexing material. New material will not be released from August through October.

    … Currently, the full text of all peer-reviewed articles and of all articles published after 2005 is released, as are the articles released through the scanning process. We are continuing to scan user-requested PDFs during this transition, but the mechanism to release the cleared PDFs will not go live until this fall.

    …In early 2015, ERIC will release a brand new section of the ERIC website that allows users to browse ERIC’s content by topic area.

    …In the next few months, the ERIC team will work with an advisory group of librarians and subject matter experts to recommend changes to the selection policy.
