HINARI Website This is the initial page of the HINARI website. Note in the left-hand column, that there are links to the Access to Content, Eligibility,, FAQs and Training Materials 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 Access to content sub-page of the website. Note the Logged in from in message. This proper login also can be confirmed by the hinari-gw.who.int/whalecommextranet... url
Journals can be accessed by title from an alphabetical list. For this exercise, click on L from the A-Z list. Note: there also is a View complete list of journals option although this drop down menu does not have hypertext links to the journals.
We have displayed the L journal list. Click on the title for The Lancet. The default is the Accessible Content page. This and the All Items displays will be discussed in subsequent slides. The green box notes access to the contents of the journal for you while the ! notes that your institution is denied access (predominantly Group B although some Group A with exclusions). 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 publishers website usually with access to the current issue.
Another option to find articles through HINARI/PubMed. PubMed is an database with citations and annotations to over 21,000,000 articles. Using this option will be discussed later in this presentation.
Click on the link to find journals by Subjects. From the drop down menu, we will select Parasitology and Parasitic Diseases.
An alphabetical list of Parasitology and Parasitic Diseases journals is now displayed with links to the journal websites. Click on the title Trends in Parasitology After the title of the journal, the available volumes/issues are listed.
To find books by title, click on the appropriate Books collection alphabetical letter. Note that there is a View complete list of books option although this drop down menu does not have hypertext links to the specific titles. You will need to go back to the Books collection A-Z list to open any e-books.
Now opened is the O list from the Books by title drop down menu.. This example is for a Group A institution with no exclusions.
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.
From the HINARI Content page, you also can open the Search inside HINARI full-text through database and article searching, Reference sources and Free collections lists. Note: Many of these resources are underutilized by HINARI users as most individuals concentrate on obtaining full-text journal articles.
Via clicking on the Database and article searching link, we have opened the Browse databases A-Z list. Similar to other access points, there are the Accessible Content and All Items listings that depend on the Publishers exclusions.
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.
Now we have clicked on the Reference Sources link and opened the Browse reference sources A-Z list. Many of these resources contain full- text information on a variety of topics.
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.
From the Free Collections drop down menu, you can access other free e-journal gateways and be able to obtain full-text articles. We will examine one of these – Highwire Free to Developing Economies.
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 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.
