Narrow Search Results in CINAHL to Nursing Journal Articles

After conducting a search in the CINAHL (nursing & allied health literature) database, you can narrow your results to articles published in nursing journals only.

Follow these steps after retrieving your initial set of results in CINAHL:

  1. On the left side of the search results page, under Limit To, click the Show More link located underneath Publication Date
  2. In the window that pops up, navigate to the Journal Subset menu and select Nursing
  3. Scroll down and click the yellow Search button in the lower right corner

Your search results will now be limited to articles published in nursing journals. If you have any questions about these steps, please contact your Nursing Librarian Jodi Jameson (, 419.383.5152). 

Browse the Online Journals List

You can search/browse for specific nursing journals within the library's Online Journals List.

  1. Within the Online Journals List, enter the keyword nursing in the search box (or add additional keywords - i.e. nursing and pediatrics; nursing and community health). 
  2. Once you locate a specific nursing journal that corresponds with your research topic or interests, you can click the link to that journal and search directly within it for articles.
