New Video: How ERIC Selects New Sources

Here’s a new “>video from the the Institute of Education Sciences (U.S. Dept. of Education).

ERIC has a formal process for selecting new sources that enhance the usefulness of the collection. This video describes the source selection process and specific requirements of the ERIC selection policy. The video also explains how journal publishers and producers of non-journal materials can suggest their resources to ERIC for indexing consideration. While individual authors may submit their work to ERIC using the online submission system, this video can help publishers determine if their materials are a good fit to be considered for ERIC.
