Are you trying to find full text documents from the Educational Resource Information Center, (ERIC) either from eric.gov or EBSCOhost? If you have tried, you’ve discovered not all full text articles are available. Here is the message ERIC has put on their website:
A limited number of ERIC full-text documents are available at this time due to privacy concerns about information contained in some of the collection. Although the documents in ERIC had been publicly available in microfiche for many years, the advent of the Internet has amplified the possibility that someone could make improper use of information in these ERIC documents.
We are seeking to restore access to documents as soon as possible. Our number one concern is to ensure that any full-text documents we provide do not violate any individual’s privacy. We believe that if any of us were to have our privacy compromised by an ERIC document, we would want the same consideration.
As soon as we learn that the problem has been corrected, we will share that information on the blog.
