Databases for Education

  • ERIC
    The Education Resource Information Center, ERIC provides citations for more than 1 million resources, ranging from journal articles (peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed), to reports, to education guides, to books, and much more. Considered the largest single source of education information, ERIC is highly recommended for students of education and teachers alike.
  • Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
  • Academic Search Elite
    Not as deep as some more discipline-specific databases, Academic Search Elite offers a range of journal titles in nearly every academic discipline for more general journal research. Use it as a good starting place for more in-depth research, or a one-stop for more general topic research.
  • Mental Measurements Yearbook
    Produced by the Buros Center for Testing at the University of Nebraska, this database provides users with a comprehensive guide to over 3,000 contemporary testing instruments. Design your testing instrument with confidence by searching the complete range of test products in areas of psychology, education, business, and leadership.
  • Proquest Education Journals
    The Education Journals collection indexes abstracts and full-text documents from scholarly & trade journals, magazines, reports, periodical articles and more in a range of education-related subjects. Provides full-text coverage in over 1,100 education resources.

Citation Help

When writing a research paper, it is important to correctly cite the sources you use in order to avoid plagiarism and give credit for any ideas you have borrowed. Depending on your field of study and your professor's preference, you may be asked to use one of a variety of different citation styles with different rules about formatting, in-text citations, and references/works cited pages.

This box is designed to help direct you to some of the most common citation styles you will encounter as a student, including basic examples and print and Web resources to consult if you need more in-depth information. Please mouse over the Citation Styles tab above or choose your style from the list below:




Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS)

The Chicago Manual of Style has evolved over 100 years and 16 editions to become the main rule book for writers from many different academic disciplines, including the humanities, sciences, and social sciences, of what is commonly referred to as a footnote or endnote format of writing. The online version of the 16th edition of the manual includes the style’s rules, along with a “Chicago Style Q&A” feature, and is updated to reflect rules for the preparation of electronic and digital formats such as e-books and web publications.
