ERIC: Clearinghouse Numbers

A guide to all aspects of ERIC including content, searching, and viewing results on the ProQuest platform.

Clearinghouse Numbers

Documents indexed prior to 2005 were assigned Clearinghouse Numbers by the subject-oriented clearinghouses that processed the records. A two-letter prefix identifies each clearinghouse, followed by a six-digit accession number, occasionally referenced in the Note field. The following table provides the clearinghouse names and associated prefixes used in ERIC records released from 1966 to July 2004.† This table can be found in the www.eric.ed.gov Help files.
