Welcome to the HINARI Homepage
Welcome to the HINARI Homepage. This tutorial
will look at how to use the HINARI website.
The HINARI website address
To access the HINARI website, enter the URL
Choose a language option
Choose a language option. This tutorial will be
in English.
Registration 1
Your institution must be registered for you to
gain access to the full-text electronic
resources. Click on the Register link to access
the form to see if your institution is
registered or must complete this process.
Before registering your institution, you need to
check if your organization already has
registered. Click on the REGISTERED UNIVERSITIES
updated weekly. Note that you also can confirm
that your institution is eligible for HINARI by
clicking on the (check eligibility) link.
From the drop down menu, click on your country
to see the list of registered institutions. For
this exercise, we have chosen Viet Nam.
If your institution is registered, contact the
Librarian or Director for the User Name and
Password. If you are not able to do this,
contact HINARI at hinari_at_who.int. Please note
that only Universities and Professional Schools
are included in these lists. Note Only ONE
registration per institution is

This is one of the pages of the 'Institution
profile' that you will not be able to view. Note
the important Contact Details that can contain
'out-of-date' information. For updating
contacts, please provide the full names of your
country, institution, librarian and/or director,
and his/her e-mail address(es), to the trainers
or to HINARI via hinari_at_who.int .
Registration 2
Only one registration per institution is
required. If not registered, complete form, enter
the Registration Check and click on Send
Registration. Once the institution is
registered, the librarian will receive a HINARI
User Name and Password. All members of the
institution researchers, teaching staff,
librarians, students etc. are entitled to use
the institutions User Name and Password.
Logging in to HINARI 1
Login to the HINARI website by clicking on
LOGIN. Note If you do not login into HINARI, you
will not get access to the full text articles.
Workshop User Name/Password
  • User Name
  • Password

Logging into HINARI 2
We will need to enter our HINARI User Name and
Password in the appropriate boxes, then click on
the Login button. Note If you do not properly
sign on, you will not have access to full text
If you fail to use the Login page, you will have
a second option on the Full text journals,
databases, and other resources sub-page.
In this example, we opened the Find Journals by
Subject HIV/AIDS listing. Note that only 7
journals are full access while there is a long
list of journals that you must log in to access
these journals.
Once logged-in, you will be taken into the Full
text journals, databases, and other resources
sub-page of the website. Note the You are
logged in message. This proper login also can
be confirmed by the hinari-gw.who.int/whalecommext
ranet... url
Accessing journals by title 1
Journals can be accessed by title from an
alphabetical list. For this exercise, click on
L from the A-Z list. Note there also is a View
complete list of journals option.
We have displayed the L journal list. Click on
the title for The Lancet. The green box notes
access to the contents of the journal for you
while the ! notes that your institution is denied
access (predominantly Band 2 although some Band
1). Note that the years of volumes available
are listed after the journal title.
Accessing journals by title 4
Another window will open at the journal
publishers website.
For each article, there are three
options Abstract, Full Text or PDF formats.
You can get the article in Full Text or HTML
format that includes links to sections of the
article, bibliographic citations or related
With the PDF or Portable Document Format, you
will receive a scanned image of the article.
This format is similar to the traditional print
option . To download a PDF document, you will
need a copy of the Adobe Acrobat program which
can be download freely from the Adobe
website http//www.adobe.com
Other methods of finding journals
Articles can also be found via PubMed, Subject
listing, Language, and Publisher.
Accessing journals by via PubMed
Click on the link to find articles through
PubMed. Using PubMed will be covered in
subsequent modules.
Accessing journals by subject 3
From the drop down menu, we have selected
Parasitology and Parasitic Diseases.
Accessing journals by subject 4
An alphabetical list of Parasitology and
Parasitic Diseases journals is now displayed with
links to the journal websites. Click on the title
Trends in Parasitology After the title of the
journal, the available volumes/issues are listed.
By clicking on a journal title, you will open
the journal in a new window Trends in
Accessing journals by Language 1
To Find journals by language of publication,
click on the drop down menu.
Accessing journals by Language 2
In this example, we will look for French language
Accessing journals by Language continued
An alphabetical list of French language journals
is displayed. The green box notes the access
status for your institution.
Accessing journals by Language 4
Select a title from the list and a new window
will open at the publishers website Medecine et
Maladies Infectieuses
Select a title from the list and a new window
will open at the publishers website.
To Find journals by publisher, click on the drop
down menu. This is different than the Partner
publishers services where users enter the
publishers portals.
Partner publisher services 1
We can also access full text resources from
Partner publishers websites by selecting from
the drop down menu. Note that the menu lists
which Publishers You have full access to. Using
Partner publishers websites will be taught in
next module.
Partner publisher services continued
Once we have selected a publishers resource, a
new window will open in this case
Wiley-Blackwell InterScience.
Partner publisher services 3
We have selected Elsevier Science Direct, another
Partner publishers website.
We briefly will introduce some of the other
resources available from the HINARI program. Via
one of the three drop down menus, there are a
number of Databases and (Bibliographic) Indexes
that can be accessed. Note Many of these
resources are underutilized by HINARI users as
most individuals concentrate on obtaining
full-text journal articles.
We have opened the initial page of Scopus
(Elsevier), a large abstract and citation
database of peer-reviewed literature and quality
web sources with smart tools to track and analyze
research. Being from a HINARI registered
institution, and having logged into HINARI, you
will be able to use these resources from various
commercial publishers.
CINAHL (EBSCO) is another resource from the
Databases and (Bibliographic) Indexes menu. It
provides indexing for 2,960 journals and can be
searched for information on nursing, biomedicine,
health sciences librarianship, alternative/
complementary medicine, consumer health and 17
allied health disciplines. Via HINARI, many of
these journals can be accessed.
A third resource from the Databases and
(Bibliographic) Indexes menu is Scirus. It is a
searchable database to over 370 million
scientific items including journal content,
scientists' homepages, courseware, pre-print
server material, patents and institutional
repository and website information.  It also
contains numerous SciTopics pages on medicine and
biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology.
Via the second drop down menu, we will highlight
a number of Reference Sources that can be
accessed from HINARI.
Cochrane Library contains high quality ,
independent evidence for health care decision
making. It includes numerous access options
including via keyword, MeSH terms and category
listings. Cochrane Library is one of 5 sources
of information on evidence-based practice in
The Oxford Textbook of Medicine, 5th edition is
one of the foremost international textbooks of
internal medicine. It provides practical
guidance on the clinical management and
prevention of disease, with in-depth coverage of
the traditional specialty areas. The initial
page contains an expandable table of contents
that details the contents of each topic.
Also included in the Reference Sources listing
are numerous psychiatry/psychology related
full-text resources. We have opened the American
Psychiatric Association Practice Guidelines tool
that is searchable by keyword and broad subject
Another useful Reference Sources resource is BMJ
Learning. This site contains over 500 peer
reviewed evidence based learning modules. You
are able to browse the modules via a subject
based drop down menu. Note you have to register
and create a profile and include your topics of
interest to access the documents.
The final Reference Sources resource we will look
at is the EndNoteWeb (Thomson Scientific). It is
a reference management software package used to
manage bibliographies and references when writing
essays and articles. This is invaluable for
researchers and post-graduate students.
We now will sample several of the resources from
the Other Free Collections drop down menu.
HighWire Press 3
This is the HighWire Press initial page. From
this site, we can locate full-text articles
and/or journal titles directly without accessing
HINARI as this resource is based on IP (computer)
addresses of eligible countries. The Free Access
to Developing Economies link is located on the
initial page. Also of interest is the Free
full-text content link.
This is the initial page of the Free Access to
Developing Economies list of HighWire Press. As
noted, the access is based on the computer's IP
Address and you can go directly to the site using
the url.
The Other Free Collection menu includes
FreeBooks4Doctors, a website that has links to
365 full-text books on the Internet. This
gateway is searchable by keyword, topic or
language. Updated 2010 04
  • Accessing Articles
  • Problems and Solutions
  • (Appendix 1)

Full-text Article Access Problems Using the
Journals by title A-Z list, we are attempting
to access a full-text article from the Blood.
Although HINARI users should have access to this
journal, we will use this as an example of what
could go wrong.
  • Access problems can be caused by
  • failure to properly LOGIN with the institution's
    User Name/Password
  • technical problems at the Publisher's website
  • 3) or problems with local systems (configuration
    of user institutions
  • firewall, configuration of browser)
  • 4) The publisher has not authorized access
    mostly for Band 2 countries 

Consequently, you may see a message on the
Publisher denying access and requesting Sign In
or Purchase Short-Term Access. Note Your HINARI
institutional User Name/Password will NOT work.
To confirm that you have used the institutional
User Name and Password correctly, check that you
have the You are logged in message. This also
is confirmed in the address or URL search box of
the web browser. If properly authenticated,
you will see a URL that begins with http//hinar
Institutional Firewall Problems
  • In this situation, a proxy server is blocked
    by the institutions firewall. Please check with
    your computer department to make sure the
    institutions firewall does not block proxy
    servers. The computer system must be able to
    access HINARIs proxy server. Insure that you
    are permitted access to the IP
    through your institutions firewall. Otherwise,
    you will not be able to login properly and access
    HINARIs full-text articles.

Accessing journals by title 1
NOTE  If you have problems when you are
accessing a full-text journal from HINARI/PubMed
(not via the links from the principal HINARI
page), there is one other step to check. If you
are unable to access an article from a journal
via the Link Out icons in HINARI/PubMed, double
check this by going to the title in the Journals
by title A-Z list and also verify the years of
volumes available.
When viewing any page of the Journals by title
A-Z list, the green box notes if your institution
has access to the contents of the journal. The !
notes that your institution is denied access
(predominantly Band 2 although some Band 1). If
you are denied access to a full-text article
despite the green box, follow the instructions in
the next slide. Note that the years of volumes
available are listed after the journal title.
Double check that you have completed the HINARI
LOGIN.  If this is not the problem, notify HINARI
staff (hinari_at_who.int) so that they can
communicate with the Publisher and resolve the
problem. This example is an email received from
a HINARI user in Uganda. Note make sure you
include your institutional User Name, the name of
the journal(s) and other details. Also include a
screen capture that contains the URL (Internet
address) of the journal (seen next slide).
This is the example of the screen capture that
was attached to the email message for
hinari_at_who.int For the JEM article, it noted
that This item requires a subscription. The
publisher requested that the user Sign in (User
Name and Password for individual subscription) or
Purchase Short-Term Access. Note this screen
capture includes the URL of the journal. This
information is invaluable to the HINARI staff who
will try to resolve the access problem. You can
create a screen capture by clicking on the Print
Screen key while viewing the webpage of the
journal.  Then paste (edit/paste or control/v)
the material into a word processing document and
send as an attachment.
This additional screen capture notes that the
journal is listed on the J page of the Journals
by Title A-Z list, that the requested journal
issue is available and that, by the green box,
the institution should have access to the
journal. If the HINARI authentication system had
worked properly, the user would have had access
to the journal article. Updated 2010 02
HINARI Printing, Copying, Saving and Emailing
Articles Problems and Solutions(Appendix 2)
Examples from
  • Elsevier Science Direct
  • Nature Publishing
  • HighWire Press

We will review how to 'print, copy, save or
email articles' by looking at the options from
three principal HINARI publishers. These issues
can be complicated as they often also are
'Access' problems. Note If you cannot
'access' a full-text article, see the 'HINARI
Access Problems and Solutions' document
at www.who.int/hinari/training/HINARIaccessproble
In the initial example, we have accessed the
table of contents page of a current issue of the
Lancet via the Elsevier Science Science Direct
website. From this page, you can access PDF
files, Email Articles or Download PDFs plus, if
you click on the Title, you access the html
version of the article that will be 'read' by
your Web Browser. Note in most cases, the
HINARI Partner Publishers will have similar
options for obtaining a copy of the full-text

We have accessed the HTML/full-text version of
the article that is displayed by the Web browser.
Also from this page, you can go to the PDF
version or the E-mail Article option. The
E-mail Article option will include a link to the
article but not the full text. You will view
messages such as If you have a User Name
Password, you may already have access to this
article. Please login below' and 'If you do not
have a User Name and Password, click the
'Register to Purchase' button below to purchase
this article. (To access the full-text of this
article, you will need to LOGIN to HINARI and
locate the required issue from the A-Z 'Find
journals by title' list.) Note The HTML version
will include the hypertext links to footnotes and
other articles and you can copy/paste from this
option. The PDF version appears similar to a
print copy. Once downloaded, you cannot
copy/paste from this option.
We have accessed the PDF version of the editorial
titled Essential medicines pricing-reform needed.
There are two useful options for obtaining a
copy of this article 1) Print (click to print
this PDF file or pages from it) 2) Save (click to
save this article to your computer or another
We have clicked on the Print option and, in this
case, the commands for a Canon IP1600 printer
We have chosen the Save option. We have been
directed to the hard drive of the computer
(cdocuments/HINARI/). Another option would be
to send the file to a flash drive or floppy disk
that you have inserted into the computer. In
either case, you will be able to save the PDF
file and view the article at another time using
Adobe Reader software..
We now will view some 'problems' when attempting
to obtain a copy of an article plus discuss
several options. In Nature, we have accessed an
editorial titled 'Science Restored.' You can
note the similar functions 1) Download PDF 2)
Send to a friend Reminder the Send to a friend
option will not result in access to the fulltext

We have attempted to access the PDF file and
have come up with a blank page. Plus there
appear to be no options/button to return to the
previous page. What options do we have since we
cannot access the PDF file in order to print it?

We have two ways to return to the article 1)
hold down the ALT key and click on the left arrow
key 2) return to HINARI via one of the tabs in
Web browser. By displaying the History function,
we can see the link to the PDF file (457511b.pdf)
and also the HTML/full-text article (Science
restoredArticleNature). Either way, we should
be able to return to the article in Nature and
'save' it using the other options.

We now will look at an article from the HighWire
Press American Journal of Epidemiology that is
included in the 'Free Access to Developing
Economies' list.
We have accessed a recent volume of the American
Journal of Epidemiology. Note that there is a
FREE Full Text (PDF) option for copying the
article. We now will discuss 'emergency' options
for WHEN the PDF file cannot be opened and copied.
One of the options is to create a screen capture
of the text from what is displayed by the Web
browser. This example has been transferred to a
MS Word document. To obtain the complete
article, you will need to make a number of screen
captures. Also the blue hypertext links will not
function. You can create a screen capture by
clicking on the Print Screen key while viewing
the webpage of the journal.  Then paste
(edit/paste or control/v) the material into a
Word Processing document or NotePad and save the
file on your computer or flash drive.
In this final 'emergency' option starting from
what is displayed by the Web browser, we have
highlighted (click left mouse cursor and, to
include the text, drag the mouse over the
document). The material will become highlighted
in blue and can be copied (edit/copy or
control/c). Again, you will have to repeat the
process several times. This method can result in
extra material being copied .
To save the highlighted material, again paste
(edit/paste or control/v) the material into a
Word Processing or NotePad file and save the
document to your computer or flash
drive. Remember that these two 'copying
emergencies' methods are used when the
publisher's options (save, print or email) are
not available. Reminder - If you cannot 'access'
a full-text article, see the 'Access Problems and
Solutions' document at www.who.int/hinari/trainin
