Together these two encyclopedias provide a complete resource for educational research - and they have been extensively updated since their first publication. This CD-ROM provides educational researchers, teachers and students at universities, institutes of education and colleges with a unique information resource, unrivaled in its depth of coverage of all aspects of educational research.
