HINARI The Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative (HINARI) is coordinated by the World Health Organization (WHO) Collaboration 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. AGORA (agricultural research) and OARE (environmental research) are similar programs

Exercise 1 Complete exercise 1 on the worksheet.
Searching Strategy Overview Define your information need –What sort of information are you looking for? Is it for specific information? - from a data book, encyclopaedia, dictionary or textbook Is it general information within a subject area? Does the search require more thought and information? –Who is going to use the information? Is it for a clinician, researcher, student or a member of the public?
Choose your search terms –What are the key phrases and/or unique words that might appear in a website or article? –Are there synonyms, alternate spellings, plurals or capitals that should be considered? –What broader topic is the search part of or related to?
Decide which sources to use –What sources are appropriate? This can range from organizations websites and news articles to subject gateways and databases, journals, reference resources, e- books or reports and grey literature.
Review and revise your search –Be prepared to review and revise your search scope and strategy – by using other sources of information or other search terms or different combinations of terms or by using a different type of search –Try new sources of information (familiarity is sometimes too easy) –Start again near the beginning of this process if you need to See the INASP Introduction to Using the Internet workshop
Full Boolean Searching Use Logic Operators –AND –OR –NOT
AND Operator (to combine two concepts) the AND operator is used to combine two concepts e.g. hip AND fracture – in the shaded area
AND Operator (to combine three concepts) the AND operator is used to combine three concepts e.g. hip AND fracture AND elderly – in the shaded area
OR Operator (info containing one or other term) renal OR kidney – in the shaded area with the overlap in the middle having both search terms
NOT Operator (in one term or the other) pig NOT guinea – in the shaded area Venn Diagrams and Boolean Operators operations.html
Advanced Searching Techniques Truncation –* or $ is inserted to find all alternative endings of a word (gyn*cology or child*) Proximity Searching –NEXT or NEAR or parentheses e.g. (malaria parasite) Case Sensitivity –only finds items spelled exactly as you type them
More Search Techniques Field Specific Searching –Title –Date –URL Language Restrictions and other limits (to be discussed in the PubMed searching modules) Relevancy Ranking –a grading that gives extra weight to a document when the search terms appear in the headline or are capitalized –every found document is calculated as 100% multiply by the angle formed by weights vector for request and weights vector for document found
Exercise 2 Complete exercise 2 on the worksheet.
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.

Accessing journals by title 2 A page appears containing all the journals beginning with L.
Accessing journals by title 4 After clicking on The Lancet, another window will open at the journal publishers website.
Accessing journals by via PubMed To locate articles via PubMed, click on Search HINARI journal articles through PubMed (Medline). This will be later in the course.
Accessing journals by subject 1 Click on the link to find journals by Subject.
Accessing journals by subject 4 An alphabetical list of Parasitology and Parasitic Diseases journals now is displayed with links to the journal websites.
Partner publisher services 1 We can also access full text resources from Partner publishers services websites by selecting from dropdown menu.
Partner Publisher Services – Science Direct We have entered the Elsevier Science Direct website.
Other full text sources 1 There are a number of Databases and (bibliographic) Indexes. these can be accessed from the list on the right- hand side of the website. CINAHL is a useful database for Nursing material.
African Index Medicus We have selected African Index Medicus.
Exercises 3-4 Complete exercises 3-4 on the worksheet.
Publishers Websites From the Partner publisher services dropdown menu, click on the Elsevier Science Direct website.
Publishers websites We have entered the Elsevier Science Direct website.
