CINAHL – Part 2

Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature

a search scenario
A search scenario:
  • Let’s say you are interested in researching teaching methods for nontraditional education.
  • The topics to pull out and find “CINAHL headings” for are as follows:
    • Nontraditional education
    • Teaching methods

Let’s use the CINAHL headings to get our search results.

database searching disclaimer
Database searching disclaimer
  • The numbers of articles are always changing as these databases are updated regularly. When you try the steps on your computer the number of citations will most likely be different.
  • The numbers can even vary when two people are trying to recreate the exact same search.
  • That is OK! It does not mean you did anything wrong!
slide4

Check mark, Suggest Subject Terms. Type your first term in the first row box. Click on, Search

Education, Non-Traditional, is a good option. Sometimes there are multiple options and all can be check marked. Sometimes clicking on Next, will allow you to view more options. For this search we’ll just use one.

Your original search had 808 possibilities. Adding the 3rd

term and limiting to Research Articles brings this down

to 20. If you are trying this search your results could be

different. These databases are regularly updated.

slide15

Probably limiting to research articles will ensure that most are peer-reviewed, but to be sure, you can also limit to Peer-reviewed. Click on Show More again and check mark Peer Reviewed.

in summary
In summary…
  • Use CINAHL for in depth information on nursing topics.
  • Use the CINAHL Headings to get the right subject headings for your topics. This will get the most relevant hits.
  • Use Boolean searching to combine terms and narrow your search results.
  • Mark the citations you want to use and save them for future reference.
in summary1
In summary…
  • If you don’t find a CINAHL Headings term that matches your concept, then do a keyword search using “” marks around your words so they appear together in the citation.
  • This will assure that the words are all found together.
