Finding Survey Instruments and Questionnaires: Locating Instrument References

Locating Instrument References

Health Business Elite does not contain an instruments or measurements field within its records. 

So locating published instrument references in this database requires more time and attention than it would in CINAHL Complete, HaPI, PsycINFO or PsycTESTS

Where published instrument references are available in Health Business Elite records, they will appear in the Abstracts field. 

An abstracts nested "OR" search zeros in on any published instrument references by limiting your search to the abstracts field. 

But not every study using a published instrument will contain explicit references to it in its abstract. 

The most reliable way to search for published instrument references in this database is to consult the methods section of the article full text. 

Unfortunately, this is also the most tedious and time consuming method for doing so.
