NAMTA's purpose is to maintain Montessori traditions, and at the same time, to be on the cutting edge of innovative education. Accordingly, we provide the medium for study, interpretation, and improvement of Montessori education.
TThe Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) is a national information system designed to provide access to education-related literature. ERIC was established in 1964 and is supported by the U.S. Department of Education.
The ERIC database is the world's largest source of educational information. It contains abstracts of documents and journal articles on education research and practice. Past articles from The NAMTA Journal as well as other Montessori publications, dissertations, conference presentations, and research papers, are fully indexed. Most public and academic libraries provide access to ERIC for their patrons.
ERIC revised its selection policy in January 2014 and developed a list of newly approved journals and non-journals in May 2014. NAMTA resubmitted The NAMTA Journal to ERIC for the November 2014 review.
