The ERIC Database indexes two kinds of publications. An "EJ" is an "educational journal" or educational related periodical like Phi Delta Kappan or Educational Leadership.

An "ED", or "educational document", is anything else but an article from a periodical. ED's can be unpublished reports, speeches, guides, studies, etc.

In the title list in ERIC: "EJ" citations will have a periodical title in italics with dates and volume numbers; "ED" citations will not.
