EBSCO is an aggregator. They contract with journal publishers and put all the journals under an umbrella. This umbrella is called a database. Unlike the Internet or World Wide Web (www) CINAHL allows you to to limit your search to Peer Reviewed Journals, to Humans, to a specific age category, to English.....These are called filters or limiters.
When you search a specific database like CINAHL you use a convenient search engine interface. Some databases such as CINAHL include a thesaurus of MAJOR TERMS ("MM") to help you find articles more easily.
