Chinese ERIC is modelled after the ERIC database produced by the U.S. Department of Education Educational Resources Information Center.
"This project also aims to establish a free electronic database of educational studies in Chinese communities. C-ERIC provides information about our Faculty of Education and the Hong Kong Institute of Educational Research, and develops a database for educational journal articles in Chinese societies: the Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan. It also includes theses/dissertations submitted for doctoral and master's degrees of the Chinese University. The information is disseminated via the INTERNET. The American ERIC only provides citations and abstracts of journal articles and educational documents in English, whereas the C-ERIC database includes both Chinese and English." -- Chinese ERIC
