EDUCATION (GENERAL)

A huge area. This is just a small selection of useful sites.


AERA SIG Communication of Research (alphabetised list of links to journals in the field of education - "To the best of our ability to discern, we have included only links to electronic journals that are scholarly, peer-reviewed, full text and accessible without cost. We have excluded professional magazines that are largely not refereed, and commercial journals that may only allow access to a very limited number of articles as an enticement to buy. By restricting membership in this way on the list that follows, we hope to do what little we can to promote free access world wide to scholarship in education.")
