and a little more in PubMed

1. You will be using CINAHL and PubMed to find peer-reviewed articles. Cochrane, Google Scholar, APPsearch, and other databases are reasonable choices also. In Cochrane, be sure to click on the "Trials" tab to find randomized and "quasi-randomized" studies.
2. Your results in CINAHL and PubMed will link to full text of the articles. Well, it will link to full text for most articles you see, not all. If the button you click does not work, try Google Scholar, contact me, and/or try ILLiad to get from another library.
You might enjoy this study I just found today, 10/2/2020. It's really targeted at librarians.
CINAHL (and all EBSCO) and Google Scholar also have useful citation tools.
One question I received:
Once I do a search and put articles in a file, how do I save that file so I can retrieve it later?
One answer: CINAHL appears to let you save articles you find to a folder, but if you do not login to an account, those will be gone when you return to CINAHL. There are alternatives to using the CINAHL-EBSCO account, but you will be using CINAHL a lot.
