A new look for British Education Index

British Education Index, ERIC and Australian Education Index are now available to IOE students and staff on the new ProQuest Professional Platform.

British Education Index (ProQuest)

Access to over 20 other leading datasets including Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts (ASSIA), International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS) and Sociological Abstracts is provided through the parallel ProQuest Academic Platform.

Both platforms have a common search interface so the ‘look and feel’ is the same but they are distinct so no cross-searching between the two is currently possible. Seamless access is provided internally via computer IP address or externally via the Portal. Alternatively use your ATHENS account to access the platforms from anywhere.

We have produced a brief user guide and a number of online tutorials are available on YouTube.

Please note IOE users will still be able to access BEI, ERIC and AUEI on the existing Dialog DataStar platform until the end of November. This will give you more time to familiarise yourself with the new ProQuest interface.
