Limiting to Nursing Journals

Both CINAHL and Medline contain a mix of nursing, medical and other allied health journals. If you want to limit your search to just those journals with a nursing focus follow these steps in CINAHL (hosted by EbscoHost).


1. Enter your search terms in the search bars.  Type "nursing" in one of the search bars.  


2. Limit the journal subset by choosing "SB journal subset" from the list of options in the field box beside the search bar.  



3.  Look through your search results.  When you click on a title, you should see "Nursing" under "journal subset" on the detailed record page to indicate the article is from a Nursing journal. 




 If you are ever unsure whether or not a journal is peer-reviewed, check it on the journal information page by clicking the title in the "Source" line.
