CINAHL is the Cumulative index to nursing and allied health literature, providing authoritative coverage of literature related to these subjects. It provides access to a large proportion of English-language nursing journals and includes selected articles from approximately 3200 biomedical journals indexed by Index medicus. CINAHL also includes the Pre-CINAHL dataset. Pre-CINAHL is intended to provide current awareness of new journal articles, and is a collection of records that provide basic bibliographic information before they are indexed with CINAHL Headings. As Pre-CINAHL journal articles are indexed, the records are replaced with complete CINAHL records.


EBSCO Publishing has added text-to-speech (read aloud) support to all EBSCOhost databases. You can use this option with any full text article in HTML format. Please see 'How do I use Text-to-Speech?' for further details.


Access is available directly from this page by connecting to the CINAHL via EBSCO web site - you'll be prompted to login to MUSE as necessary.
