ComDis Dome (Communication Sciences and Disorders Dome)

ComDis Dome is a broad-based resource for professionals and students in the communication and speech/hearing therapy fields. It indexes articles, books, web pages, and dissertations, and provides information on leading scholars and institutions.


Provides indexing for over 1,700 current nursing and allied health journals and other publications dating back to 1982, with links to the full text of many articles in other GTL databases. Covers nursing, biomedicine, alternative complementary medicine, consumer health and 17 allied health disciplines. Full text material includes 60 journals plus legal cases, clinical innovations, critical paths, drug records, research instruments, and clinical trials. See also Pre-CINAHL below.


A companion database to CINAHL, Pre-CINAHL is intended to provide current awareness of new journal articles, and includes a rotating file of limited bibliographic information (no subject searching), which are available to researchers only for the time when these articles are being assigned additional indexing. This enables users to gain access to article citations that otherwise would not be available. Once the bibliographic records are complete, they are added to the CINAHL database and removed from Pre-CINAHL.
