Educology bibliography


This is a partial bibliography of educological works. It is divided into books, periodicals, articles and websites. The bibliography consists of writings that have been influential in the development of my educological thinking since my introduction to educology in 1972. Some of these works are available online. Others are available from book suppliers or libraries.
