Each record in ERIC has a unique identifying number proceeded by an ED or an EJ, depending on what kind of document it is.  

An ED record is a non-journal document and can include books, dissertations, white papers and even local school system level research reports. 

An EJ record is a journal document that has been published in an education-related publication, including academic journals.
