[APA] How do I cite a source from the ERIC database?
About this database: ERIC (Education Resources Information Center) provides access to education-related materials including books, conference papers, technical reports, policy papers and some full-text journal articles.
Cite ERIC sources as follows:
Identifiable sources (e.g., a doctoral dissertation or thesis, proceedings of a meeting, a full-text journal article or a book) should be cited by citation type.
ERIC Digests, short reports funded by the Department of Education and produced by experts in the field, should be cited using the "Report (Technical/Research)" citation type, selecting "Database" as the publication medium. See How do I cite an online ERIC Digest?
Preprints, papers, essays, research studies and other informally published or self-archived work in ERIC (APA 7.09 #62) can be cited using the "Unpublished Paper or Data" citation type, selecting "Database" as the publication medium. Providing the database name and ED accession number is preferred over using a URL in this case.
