CINAHL offers a wide array of ways for you to refine your search results. All refinment options are available below the search boxes on the Advanced Search screen. Some will display along the left side of your results, while others are available under Show More in the same place. This guide higlights three key options, but there are many more you may find useful.
Currency is often very important for nursing literature. Use the slider on the left side of your search results to limit by Publication Date. The page will update and the Limiter will be applied to your Current Search breadcrumb box.
Limiting the Journal Subset is helpful when you need to use nursing journals specifically. Click Show More under Limit To to access it. Select Core Nursing to limit your results to only the core nursing journals. You can also select Nursing. Hold down the CTRL key to select more than one.
Note the limiter options for Age, Gender and Geography. These are not useful for this particular research topic, but think about how helpful it could be if you were researching a particular disease in females over the age of 65 or looking to focus on a specific country.
What displays will depend on your results set. For Age and Geography there is a Show More link to reveal all available options.
