In Search Engines For Academic Research, we shared a list of actual search platforms including BASE, saying “BASE is one of the world’s most voluminous search engines, especially for academic web resources. BASE provides more than 200 million documents from more than 8,000 content providers. You can access the full texts of about 60% of the indexed documents for free (Open Access). BASE is operated by Bielefeld University Library.”

Below, we shared tools for educational research specifically. Note, many of the tools on the above list may also be useful, too.
