    Finding scholarly nursing articles in databases Finding scholarly nursing articles in databases Presentation Transcript

    • Finding Scholarly, full-text Nursing Articles in library Databases
      Forsyth Library, Fort Hays State University
    • How to focus your search
      Most databases have a way for you to limit your search so you only find articles of a certain type, such as Peer-Reviewed (also called Scholarly or Refereed) or Full-text (the complete article is available).
      This presentation will show where to find and use these limits in various nursing databases.
    • How to access the Nursing databases
      Go to www.fhsu.edu/library
      Then click Find Articles & Databases
      Click “Databases”
    • Databases listed Alphabetically
      Click on the name of the database to search it
      Nursing Databases include:
      • CINAHL
      • Cochrane Library
      • ProQuest Nursing
      • Science Direct
      • PubMed Central
      • Sage Premier
      • Health Reference Center Academic
    • CINAHL (SIN-awl) Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature
      Cinahl offers more limiting options than most databases, which lets you perform a very precise search. To start with, however, Full-Text, Peer-Reviewed and perhaps Research Article are sufficient. If you select too many limits, you may not find anything.
      Limits your results to only those citations which have a link to the complete article
      Only articles which are from scholarly academic journals, and have been examined by experts in that field (peer-reviewers). These articles are of the highest quality and contain the most trustworthy information.
      Only articles that are reporting the results of a research experiment. Note: an article can be from a peer-reviewed journal but still not be a research article (could be an editorial, book review, etc.)
    • Cochrane Library
      This database contains a wealth of evidence-based data on treatments, technologies, and more. The Systematic Reviews are meta-analyses of many studies of the same treatment, to reach a conclusion about its effectiveness as well as the quality of the research .
      Use the quick search box, or click Advanced Search to combine terms or use MeSH headings (Medical Subject Headings--uniform terms for
      medical subjects)

    • Cochrane Library results list
      “Reviews” are completed and are full-text.
      “Protocols” are reviews which have just begun, so very little information is available.
    • ProQuest Nursing
      This database contains articles from scholarly journals, trade publications & magazines as well as full-text Dissertations. If you want to view Dissertations, do not limit to Scholarly Journals.
      Click About for an explanation of scholarly and peer-reviewed
      The same limits are available under the green Advanced Search tab, where you can search for a combination of terms.
    • Science Direct: Health & Life Sciences Collections
      1. Click “Search” in the green toolbar.
      2. Type in your search terms
      3. Select “Subscribed Sources” so you’ll get only full-text articles.
      All articles in Science Direct are scholarly.
      4. Select your subject (optional) or just leave it at All Sciences.
    • PubMed Central vs. PubMed
      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/
      PubMed Central is a subset of PubMed. All articles in PubMed Central are full-text, scholarly articles.
      If you don’t find what you need in it, try searching PubMed. We may be able to get the article from another database, in print or from another library.
      www.pubmed.gov
    • SAGE Premier, step 1
      Sage Premier database contains ONLY scholarly articles. It covers a wide range of disciplines, including Health Sciences. It has Full-Text articles back to 1999.
      Here is how to find Full-Text articles in Nursing.
      1
      Click on Advanced Search By Discipline
    • SAGE Premier, continued
      4
      Be sure to change the date range, to no further back than 1999. Older citations will not have the complete article link. Then, put in your terms at the top and click Search.
      2
      Click “Select From a List of Disciplines”
      3
      Next, you can check the box to search all Health Sciences Journals, OR click the + sign and select Nursing or another topic.
    • Health Reference Center Academic
      This database contains articles from “nursing & allied health journals, plus a wide variety of personal health information sources” from 1980 – present.
