Indexes & Databases for Education-related research
Where should you start your research? Most education-related topics are covered in the ERIC database, but if you're doing a comprehensive literature review, then you'll need to search your topic in at least a few databases, including PsycInfo and Web of Science. Not finding what you need? Ask a Librarian! We're available by phone, email, appointment, etc.!
ERIC is a bibliographic and abstracts database covering the field of education. Includes citations and abstracts to educational journal articles (from the Current Index to Journals in Education [CIJE]) and educational documents (from the Research in Education [RIE]). Many of the educational documents 1993 - present are available online; some older ones available in the library's microform room by their ED number. ERIC is also available directly on the Web at http://eric.ed.gov/.
The primary database for research in psychology, PsycInfo provides access to the international literature in psychology and related behavioral and social sciences, including psychiatry, sociology, anthropology, education, pharmacology, and linguistics.
Find the full text of theses and dissertations done at MSU and beyond. If a thesis or dissertation from another institution isn't available full text in our database (pre 1997) inquire about making an Interlibrary Loan Request: 406-994-3161.
Use this database to determine if a journal is peer-reviewed. UlrichsWeb is a database of serials published throughout the world. The Journals by Title database will provide peer review info for titles we subscribe to as well.
Use CatSearch to search multiple databases at once; most but not all of the MSU Library's subscription databases are included in this search tool. Note the ability to limit to peer reviewed publications, etc.
