ERIC Documents - availability
  Full-text access to many ERIC documents has been recently restricted as a result of privacy issues. However, full-text documents are slowly being added to ERIC; however, if you would like access to a specific document, you can speed the process along:

"To minimize the burden on our users, we will prioritize searching the documents that users request. If you would like to request a PDF to be returned online, please email ERICRequests@ed.gov with the record number (such as ED263102). Documents will be returned on a rolling basis and may take several weeks, but we are working as fast as possible."
