What is Cinahl? Cinahl is the Cumulative Index to Nursing & Allied Health Literature. It is a key nursing database and a good starting point for searching for journal articles about nursing, midwifery, health and radiography. Although you can access full-text for many articles, there are embargos on some titles. This means that full-text for the latest year will not be included and you will need to check if it is available via another UCS database.
Accessing Cinahl From your UCS homepage you can access Cinahl: Via the A-Z Index of databases. Via Resources for your subject (select Nursing, then Research databases (left of screen).
Searching Cinahl Enter your search using the advanced search option. Keep search terms for each concept on a separate row. Search terms in each row will be automatically combined.
Searching Cinahl The default search field is words in citation which includes words in the article title, subject headings, abstract. This is the best starting point. If you get too many results you can narrow your search to a specific search field e.g. TI Title (of article).
Broadening your search Enter synonyms or “like” words to broaden your search. Add OR between each word so that at least one word is included in the results.
Using truncation Use * to search for alternative word endings e.g. Compassion* finds compassion or compassionate Nurs* finds nursing or nurse or nurses Empath* finds empathy or empathetic
Limiting your search results Consider limiting your search results as follows: Publication year (to the last 10 years) Publication type (to scholarly journals) Peer-reviewed article (these contain the best research) Language (English language only) Gender Age group
