We are currently running a free trial of two impressive education databases – British Education Index and Education Research Complete. The databases are provided by Ebsco, so the user-friendly interface of both will be familiar to anyone who already uses Medline, CINAHL Complete, PsycARTICLES, SPORTdiscus or Business Source Complete. The trials are available until the 5th August.
Education Research Complete covers all levels of education from early years to higher education. It also has material on professional training, particularly in the healthcare professions. It is a largely full-text database, so you can read and download most articles.
British Education Index is an excellent resource for UK publications, though it indexes some international literature too. Although this database is an index, and so full-text access would not normally be available, the ability to cross-check the holdings of our other Ebsco databases means that you will often be able to view the full-text of the articles that you find.
