In most Library databases, you can find meta-analysis research articles by using meta analysis as a search term.

There are a few databases that have special limiters for publication type or methodology in the advanced searching section.

Here is one way to find meta-analysis articles in the CINAHL Plus with Full Text  and MEDLINE with Full Text databases. 

  1. On the Library homepage, click on Select a Subject in the Subject Resources box. 
  2. Click on the Nursing link. This will take you to the Nursing Research page.
  3. Scroll down to the section: Nursing articles, journals & books.
  4. Click on Nursing databases.
  5. Scroll down and click on CINAHL Plus with Full Text or  MEDLINE with Full Text 
  6. Sign in with your myWalden user name and password if you have not already done so. 
  7. Type your keywords into the search box. For example: 

    First search box:
         Obesity

    Second search box:
         Adult

         

     
  8. Scroll down to the Publication Type box.
  9. Within the Publication Type box, scroll down and click on Meta Analysis to select it.

         
     
  10. Click the Search button at the top of the page to run your search.

Note: In the PsycINFO and PsycARTICLES databases, the Meta Analysis limiter is in the Methodology box.

   

 

These are examples of databases that have advanced search limiters for meta analysis
