The Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Education is a comprehensive research collection of in-depth, peer-reviewed research articles and summaries on education topics. You can browse by topic areas such as curriculum & pedagogy, educational leadership, and research methods, or you can search for articles on a specific topic. The Encyclopedia’s search features include standard search options such as searching by title, author, DOI, or keyword, as well as narrowing down your search results to full-text articles or just summaries. If you are researching or studying medical education or educational leadership, the Encyclopedia is a great starting point for getting authoritative information on a variety of topics. Articles in this database provide a great overview of a topic so you can hit the ground running when researching a new topic. The citation lists can also make a great starting point for further research.
