What does the ACROSS Base offer?

European projects in educational research are faced with a common methodological problem: how to analyse issues across countries, cultures, organisations, regions or systems. The aim of the ACROSS Base is to provide evidence of methodology from a broad range of projects and related studies (see introduction). This resource can be accessed from three points, depending on the user's interest:

  • access by theme, related to thematic fields and to types of research (recommended as first entry!);
  • access by approach, starting out from basic dimensions of educational research;
  • access by method, being understood as a broad category including any means of facilitating cross-national research.
An index of projects, experts and references completes the resource base. All users are invited to give feedback and contribute further resources to this base.

A special feature of the ACROSS Base is to publish proceedings of discussion related to methodological issues. The following proceedings, prepared in collaboration with European researchers, are available:

Research Forum WIFO
 

EHRD Portal
Research resources of HRD in Europe

WIFO Gate
Gateway to research on education in Europe
