CINAHL® with Full Text is the world's most comprehensive source of full text for nursing & allied health journals, providing full text for more than 610 journals indexed in CINAHL®. This authoritative file contains full text for many of the most used journals in the CINAHL index - with no embargo. Full-text coverage dates back to 1981. CINAHL is one of the multiple databases included in EBSCOhost.
Evidence-Based Practice Limiter:
The Evidence-based practice journal subset is applied to articles from evidence based practice journals (including Cochrane), as well as articles about evidence based practice, research articles (including systematic reviews, clinical trials, meta analyses, qualitative studies), commentaries on research studies (applying practice to research), case studies if they meet the criteria of the use of research and/or evidence based practice terms.
Clinical Queries Limiter:
You can refine your search using specific search strategies designed to narrow your results in five research areas: Therapy, Prognosis, Review, Qualitative, and Causation (Etiology). Three strategies are provided for each area. High Sensitivity - the broadest search to include ALL relevant material. It may include less relevant materials. High Specificity - the most targeted search to include only the most relevant result set, may miss some relevant materials. Best Balance - retrieves the best balance between Sensitivity and Specificity.
Clinical Queries are created in collaboration with the Health Information Research Unit (HIRU) at McMaster University, and are designed for clinician use.
Special Interest Limiter:
This limiter allows you to specify types of practice or special areas of interest, including case management, military/uniformed services, nutrition, and occupational therapy.
Although this video is about EBSCOhost in general, the Results List is very similar is all EBSCO databases, so the video will help you use the Results List in CINAHL.
