Jumpstart links can be created by using the linking syntax shown below. You will need to replace XXXXX with the relevant Database Code.

The syntax for jumpstarting directly to a single database in Informit is as follows:

search.informit.org/search;res=XXXXX

For multiple databases use search.informit.org/search;res=XXXXX,YYYYY

Jumpstart links can be created by using the linking syntax shown below. You will need to replace XXXXX with the relevant Database Code and YYYY-YYYY with the relevant title's ISSN.

Journal Home Pages are available for all titles within Informit full text databases:

search.informit.org/browseJournalTitle;res=XXXXX;issn=YYYY-YYYY

Pre-formatted searches allow you to jumpstart to Informit and produce a list of articles that have been indexed for a particular journal title using the following syntax:

search.informit.org/search;res=XXXXX;search=IS=YYYY-YYYY

For example: search.informit.org/search;res=APAIS;search=IS=0001-3072

Pre-formatted searches allow you to log in to Informit and jumpstart to a particular database and retrieve results automatically.

The syntax is search.informit.org/search;res=XXXXX;search=YYYYY where XXXXX is the database you wish to search and YYYYY is the search term, e.g. to find all articles in a database where a Plus Text PDF is available, this is the syntax required:

search.informit.org/search;res=APAFT;search=FTI=Yes

When you are viewing the search screen, the black Informit toolbar shows a link on the left-hand side indicating the number of databases you are searching.

For more information about the databases you are searching, click on the link. This opens a window with information. When more than one database is in use, a dropdown menu lists all available databases. Click on any of these databases to view further information, including lists of journals covered.

When you view the results of searches, they can be sorted by the options displayed in a dropdown menu at the top right of your result set. By default the records are sorted by relevance. Changes made in this area apply only to your current session.

Click the Advanced Search tab. Use the Limit Search option to select your preferred publication years. Enter a date range and perform your search.

The number of records that can fit on one screen depends on:

  1. Your screen resolution—if you are running a smaller resolution than 1024x768, you will only see a few results at any given time.
  2. How many fields are in the citation for the database you are using—each database has different fields that make up the citation (or summary) record. In some cases this may be 10 fields; therefore you will see fewer records per page than, for example, a database that has five citation fields.

Yes. You can search concurrently across as many databases as you wish. Field structures have been standardised across our entire database range to allow for this.

Check the tick box Full Text Only which appears under the search box.

If you have been charged for an article you will have been sent a receipt from us via email, listing your receipt number and article information. Please forward this email to support.informit@rmit.edu.au. We can then attach and return the PDF to you. Otherwise please contact our Customer Support Team.
