Research Instruments: Explanations, Definitions, Scope

Useful sources of guidance on finding & using research instruments.

Find Articles Including or Relating to Nursing Research Instruments

Use these resources to find articles describing the development, utilization or validation of measurement instruments (e.g. questionnaires; surveys; rating scales). When the instrument itself is not included in an article, look for any citation information, instructions/advice, or contact/affiliation information that could help you identify the copyright holder and/or a source of the material you need. Consider searching each of the CINAHL, HAPI & PsycInfo databases (either separately, or together--using the "Choose Databases" selection tool).
