    Ready to jump in? Here are the top 5 things to know about starting your research in Education

    Article literature is expansively indexed by the two main databases in the education field, ERIC and Education Source. Search them simultaneously by going to Education Source with ERIC

    Get background information by using the classic subject encyclopedia in the field, The Encyclopedia of Education or the new Oxford Bibliographies in Education database

    Statistical information is often central to educational research. Visit the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) to find data on all facets of education

    Managing all the materials you find is a key to success. Use a tool like RefWorks to save, organize and output all those citations.
