What is the difference between a journal subset and journal affiliation?
Some databases, like CINAHL, add more descriptive information about content journals, including subsets and affiliations. In that case, a subset usually would specify a particular field of study (Allied Health, Core Nursing) or even a particular geographic location. Think of it like an automobile, all are cars, but convertibles or hybrids would be subsets of cars.
The affiliation usually speaks to whether authors or journals are linked with specific institutions or organizations, like a university or a hospital. Contact us with any additional questions and happy researching!
