CINAHL Plus with Full Text
Library Guide Series
- CINAHL Plus with Full Text is the Cumulative Index to Nursing & Allied Health (CINAHL).
CINAHL is the research resource covering the English language journal literature for nursing and allied health fields.
Material from over 1,600 journals are included in CINAHL;
online abstracts are available for more than 1,200 of these titles.
Many of the files are in the PDF format and require the
Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print the articles.
- CINAHL Plus with Full Text
is available to current UT Arlington faculty & students at this webaddress:
A truncation symbol in CINAHL Plus with Full Text
is an asterisk (*),
and when this symbol is put at the end of a word,
the database will be searched for all of
the possible endings--suffixes--for that word.
For example, the command "feminis*" will have the computer search engine
look for all possible endings of this word. It should find,
"feminist," "feminists," and "feminism."
Two Boolean operators that are important in finding information
are AND and OR.
The AND is used to connect two different
concepts and the OR is used between concepts that are synonymous.
It is critical to put parentheses around a search expression
that contains an OR. Here is an example:
(wom* OR girl* OR feminis* or female*) AND
(POLICY OR POLICIES)
The first part of this statement will find material about the
girls, females, and women.
The second part will look
for the words "policy" or "policies".
then links the first set with the second.
This should be an effective
way to look for information about policies that impact women.
