Welcome to POPLINE
POPLINE provides access to 370,000 carefully selected publications and resources related to family planning and reproductive health
Peter Kisaakye is pursuing his doctoral studies in Demography at the University of Cape Town. Currently in his second year, his research examines patterns of contraceptive use dynamics using calendar data and reproductive intentions in East Africa.
As Peter was interested in studying fertility transition in East Africa, he needed to know the existing literature about the topic to inform his study design. He used POPLINE as one of his search resources and found many documents, both journal articles and grey literature that helped inform his research.
This is his story.
The tenth edition of A User’s Guide to POPLINE Keywords provides guidance to searchers that allows them to structure both broadly comprehensive and very specific searches of the POPLINE database.
This edition updates the thesaurus to better reflect current scope coverage in POPLINE. The revision process included streamlining certain hierarchies, as well as adding new terms to facilitate searching mHealth concepts.
The new Guide includes both an alphabetical and permuted listing along with a supplement describing the changes made in this edition. Available in PDF and an interactive web-based version is also available online.
