Personalising your CINAHL account

This section of the guide will cover:

  • Creating an account (and resetting your password)
  • Saving, retrieving and re-running a search
  • Saving items into folders

You can open CINAHL and search without having to create a personal account but you need to create a personal account in order to:

  • Save searches (which you can retrieve and re-run later).
  • Save articles – so you don’t have to look through the full set of results each time you run a search.
  • Create folders, so you can organise your saved articles.

The username and password you create is personal to you. If you forget your password you will need to Reset it.
