The American Journal of Nursing

As of January 2020, LCC Library no longer subscribes to the American Journal of Nursing due to the high cost of this title. You can access older issues in our collection using this information.

AJN provides access to some articles on their website. Use the Advanced Search and designate "Open Access" to articles that are freely available.

This guide is intended to support Lane students taking Nursing and the Allied Health Professions courses find materials for research, projects, and clinical practice.

Health and Medicine Databases at Lane

LCC Research Databases for Nursing (also available off-campus)

Open Access Databases

These journals are scholarly, peer-reviewed research, just like journals in the LCC databases.  The difference is that open access articles are paid for by the government, foundations, or advertisers. Many articles (but not all) are freely available to readers.

How to use CINAHL

CINAHL (pronounced "SIN-all" - the Cumulated Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature) is the premier nursing research database. Watch this short tutorial about searching CINAHL.

Not Finding What You Need?

PeaceHealth Library is a specialized medical library, offering scholarly journals, reference books, consumer health information, and Spanish language resources.  To browse their journals, go to the PeaceHealth Electronic Journals page. If you find an article at PeaceHealth that's not available at LCC, you'll need to go in person to the PeaceHealth Library in Springfield, or request the article via Interlibrary Loan.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar can help you find resources for academic research papers. Keep in mind that Google Scholar misses a lot of material that's only available by subscription. If you're asked to to pay for access to articles, look up the title of the journal where the article was published in the LCC Library Catalog to see if you have access to it for free.

If you have trouble accessing an article, ask a librarian to help!
