CINAHL: Evidence Based Practice Limit

CINAHL is a super flexible database in terms of its availability of limiters. One caveat, however, when it comes to applying limits … you need to understand what happens when you apply a particular limit. For example… the Evidence Based Practice limit…

When you choose this limit, your results will be limited to a specific subset of journals that have been identified as Evidenced Based Practice (EBP) in the “Special Interest” field. These are journals that focus on the application of EBP. There are only 23 of them. Plenty of other journals publish evidence based practice / research articles. So, when you are looking for evidence based practice literature for your assignments, use the Research Article limit rather than the Evidence Based Practice limit.
