magnifying class iconSearch Tips: Nursing Journals @ Ovid

Because we only have access to the latest 5 years of AJN, Nursing, the Journal of Nursing Administration, MCN, and Nursing Research, you might come across articles that require payment to view. Try these steps to limit your search to only full-text articles:

  • Make sure to check the Your Journals @Ovid box when you first open the database.
  • Expand the Limits options and enter a date range that only includes the last 5 years.

You can also search the titles of articles without full text in the Library Catalog to see if we have access to them in other databases.
