HINARI The HINARI Access to Research Programme is coordinated by the World Health Organization (WHO) HINARI is a public-private partnership between the WHO, publishers and other health care content owners To provide biomedical and health care research and guideline information to non-profit academic and research institutions, governmental and policy making departments in low income countries. Allows access to full-text articles in more than 7000 e-journals and other health resources.
Objectives of HINARI To connect developing world researchers with the international scientific community To reduce the ‘publishing gap’ and improve the quality of locally produced articles and journals Ultimately – to improve health in relation to Millennium Development Goals of 2015
Primary Target Audiences Eligible categories of institutions are: national universities research institutes professional schools (medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, dentistry) teaching hospitals Government: ministries and agencies national medical libraries locally based non-governmental agencies All permanent and visiting faculty, staff members and students are entitled to access and can obtain the institutional User Name and Password.

HINARI Website This is the initial page of the HINARI website. Note in the left-hand column, that there are links to the Full-text journals, database and other resources, Eligibility, Register, FAQs and Training pages. To access the HINARI website, enter the URL We will Login to look at the options for accessing full-text journal articles and other resources. `
Logging into HINARI 2 Each institution has one HINARI User Name and Password. By properly signing in, you will have access to the full text articles and other resources of HINARI.
Once logged-in, you will be taken into the Full text journals, databases, and other resources sub-page of the website. Note the ‘You are logged’ in message that confirms access to the HINARI resources.
Accessing journals by title 1 We briefly will review the options for access Journals. You can use the Find journals by title alphabetical list. Note there also is a View complete list of journals option.
In this example, we have displayed the ‘L’ journal list. We now will click on the title for The Lancet. The green box notes access to the contents of the journal for you while the ! notes that your institution is denied access (predominantly Band 2 although some Band 1). Note that the ‘years of volumes’ available are listed after the journal title.
Accessing journals by title 4 Another window will open at the journal publisher’s website usually with access to the current issue.
Accessing journals by via PubMed Another option to find articles through HINARI/PubMed. PubMed is an database with citations and annotations to over 19,000,000 articles. Using this option will be discussed later in this presentation.
Accessing journals by subject 1 Another option to find journals is by Subject. From the drop down menu, we will select Parasitology and Parasitic Diseases.
Accessing journals by subject 4 An alphabetical list of Parasitology and Parasitic Diseases journals is now displayed with links to the journals’ websites. After the title of the journal, the available volumes/issues are listed.
As of January 2011, the links to HINARI e-books have been moved from the Reference Sources drop down menu to the ‘Find journals by Title’ list. We have opened the ‘C’ from that list. All the e-books are listed at the top. In Module 7.5 (E-book Resources for HINARI Users) details access to e-books.
The Oxford Textbook of Medicine, 5 th edition is one of the foremost international textbooks of internal medicine. It provides practical guidance on the clinical management and prevention of disease, with in-depth coverage of the traditional specialty areas. The initial page contains an ‘expandable’ table of contents that details the contents of each topic. Also available is the Oxford Handbook of Tropical Medicine, 3 rd edition.
Also included in the Reference Sources listing are numerous psychiatry/psychology related full-text resources. We have opened the American Psychiatric Association Practice Guidelines tool that is searchable by keyword and broad subject categories.
Publishers’ Websites We can also access full text journal articles from Partner publishers’ services websites by selecting from the dropdown menu. You also have the Find journals by publisher listing.
HINARI – Other Resources We briefly will introduce some of the other resources available from the HINARI program. Via one of the three drop down menus, there are a number of Databases and (Bibliographic) Indexes that can be accessed. Note: Many of these resources are underutilized by HINARI users as most individuals concentrate on obtaining full-text journal articles.
We have opened the initial page of Scopus (Elsevier), a large abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track and analyze research. Being from a HINARI registered institution, and having logged into HINARI, you will be able to use these resources from various commercial publishers.
CINAHL (EBSCO) is another resource from the Databases and (Bibliographic) Indexes menu. It provides indexing for 2,960 journals and can be searched for information on nursing, biomedicine, health sciences librarianship, alternative/ complementary medicine, consumer health and 17 allied health disciplines. Via HINARI, many of these journals can be accessed.
A third resource from the Databases and (Bibliographic) Indexes menu is Scirus. It is a searchable database to over 370 million scientific items including journal content, scientists' homepages, courseware, pre-print server material, patents and institutional repository and website information. It also contains numerous SciTopics pages on medicine and biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology.
Via the second drop down menu, we will highlight a number of Reference Sources that can be accessed from HINARI.
Cochrane Library contains high quality, independent evidence for health care decision making. It includes numerous access options including via keyword, MeSH terms and category listings. Cochrane Library is one of 5 sources of information on evidence-based practice in HINARI.
Another useful Reference Sources resource is BMJ Learning. This site contains over 500 peer reviewed evidence based learning modules. You are able to browse the modules via a subject based drop down menu.
The final Reference Sources resource we will look at is the EndNoteWeb (Thomson Scientific). It is a reference management software package used to manage bibliographies and references when writing essays and articles. This is an invaluable tool for researchers and post-graduate students.
We now will sample several of the resources from the Other Free Collections drop down menu.
HighWire Press 3 This is the HighWire Press initial page. From this site, we can locate full-text articles and/or journal titles directly without accessing HINARI as this resource is based on IP (computer) addresses of eligible countries. The Free Access to Developing Economies link is located on the initial page. Also of interest is the Free full-text content link.
This is the initial page of the Free Access to Developing Economies list of HighWire Press. As noted, the access is based on the computer's IP Address and you can go directly to the site using the url.
The Other Free Collection menu includes FreeBooks4Doctors, a website that has links to 365 full-text books on the Internet. This gateway is searchable by keyword, topic or language.
Our final Other Free Collection resource to view is PubMed Central, a free digital archive of life sciences journals created by the U.S. National Institutes of Health. This resource can be searched via a keyword search engine or journal title.
PubMed Overview From the main HINARI webpage, we can access PubMed by clicking on Search HINARI journal articles through PubMed (Medline). This is an invaluable tool for identifying full-text articles and linking directly to the document. Note: If you do not properly sign on, you will not have access to full text articles from the HINARI/PubMed database.
We now will have opened HINARI/PubMed and will enter a search in the PubMed Search box. In this example, we will enter a search for malaria infections AND Africa into the Search or query box. To execute the query, click on the Search button.
Results of the search are displayed in the main body of the page. Note the two additional filters for Free Full Text and HINARI articles. Of the 3401 articles, 1377 are available via the HINARI filter and 992 with Free full text filter ( there are some overlaps).
PubMed also contains an additional hypertext link for Free full text articles. By clicking on this link, you will be re- directed to the Abstract display and be able to access the full text. Note: Access to HINARI articles also is from the Abstract display or the HINARI Filter.
You have numerous Display Settings options. From the Display Settings drop down menu, we have clicked on the Abstract Format, 20 Items per Page and Recently Added Sort by options.
We have displayed the search results using the Abstract display. By clicking on the HINARI or the Free article icons, we can access the full-text article.
In order to save the citations and abstracts, we would open the Send To drop down menu. From this menu, we are able to select the File, Collections, Order, Clipboard and options.
To use these options, you must place check marks in the boxes to the left of the citations that you wish to send to File, Collections, Order, Clipboard and options. If you do not place check marks in the boxes, the entire search results will be sent to the option you choose. Note how PubMed lists the # of citations you have checked.
In this example, we will the search results. From the Send To drop down menu, we have selected the with the Summary and Recently added options. The search results will be sent to the address you entered as the recipient.
Limits From the initial (HINARI) PubMed page, we will also can open the Limits search option. This is another invaluable tool to find the specific articles that are of interest to you.
Limits allows you to search more effectively in the PubMed database. Searches can be limited by restricting terms to fields or setting specific date or record tagging parameters. We will highlight several Limits options.
In the Published in the Last drop down menu, there are numerous options ranging from Any date (the default) to 10 years and Specify date range. We will click on the 1 year option and then the Search button – for the HIV AND Pregnancy search.
By using the 1 year Limits option, we have a search with 488 citations. The Limits Activated are highlighted in a yellow box with Change and Remove (hypertext) options. We will click on the Change link and return to Limits.
Using the HIV AND pregnancy search, we will add the English languages Limit, we will check the boxes of two Ages Limits: Adolescent years and Young Adult years. Finally, we will click on the Search button. Note that there are many other useful Limits that can be added.
By using the English languages Limit option and the Adolescent and Young Adult Ages Limits, we have a search with 2259 citations.
MY NCBI We briefly will discuss the My NCBI option on the top right-hand side of the webpage. Each individual must Register for this option.
After registering, we suggest that each person add two Filters – Free Full Text and HINARI.
We have now completed a PubMed search for hiv AND pregnancy. There are now three results filters – All, Free Full Text, and HINARI. To retain this search in your My NCBI account, you would click on the Save Search hypertext link. Via your My NCBI account, you can have messages sent to you that will include citations and abstracts for all new Free Full Text and HINARI articles on this subject.
We have opened the My Saved Data listing. You can see a list of the saved searches - ‘hiv and pregnancy’ and ‘malaria and bednets’ in this example. This registered person will receive weekly s with new articles for these saved searches.
We will discuss one final option called Collections – MY NCBI. While MY NCBI is active, we have completed a PubMed search for diabetes AND developing countries. This search has resulted in 1232 citations that are in the Summary display.
We have checked the boxes in the first five citations from this search. In the Send to drop down menu, we have activated Collections and will click on Add to Collections.
In the MY NCBI Collections page, you can note that 5 items from PubMed have been transferred. We have clicked on the Create new collection button and, in the Enter a name for your collection box, written diabetes and dev ctries. To save this collection, we will click on the Save button.
This slide confirms that Your collection was saved.
From the initial page of the HINARI website, we have accessed the Training Materials listing. A combination of PowerPoint presentations and Word exercises, these modules are for instruction at your institution and can be adapted locally. This slide lists the modules for the principal components of HINARI. Note the Additional Resources module which features the material in the Reference Sources section. (e.g. CINAHL, Evidence-based Practice Resources). Training Materials
We have accessed the Module 4. PubMed. Note that there are 6 unique modules that cover the key aspects of HINARI/PubMed.
We have highlighted the material in the Brief Training section. Note the Short Course that is geared toward training your institution’s users and also the Problems and Solutions modules. We now will view the Authorship Skills modules.
Due to requests from participants at workshops, the Authorship Skills modules have been developed. This material reviews the peer-review publishing process, discusses copyright and plagiarism issues and includes a web-bibliography with annotated links to material on the Internet.
