About the workshop

ERIC, the British Education Index and A+ Education are key databases for education-related literature. All three index research material, including journal articles, conference papers, dissertations, and books. Searching in the indexes is enhanced by their individual thesauruses, which comprise a structured hierarchy of terms used to index the items included in each database.
