There are a number of ways to find empirical articles. The most user-friendly way would be to use a specific database called “APA PsycNET.”
- Click on the following link to get to the main library page: Link.
- Look on the left underneath "Search Anything" and you should see "Search Tools: Advanced Search, Databases by Name, Search Tips, and Recursos en Español."
- Please select "Databases by Name."
- When the page loads, look on the left under "Browse by Letter" and select "A."
- When the next page loads, look on the right under "Databases by Letter - A" and select "APA PsycNet."
- Once the database loads, scroll down to where it says "Filters"
- Select "Select Filters" and from the dropdown menu choose "Methodology"
- Once you select “Methodology,” another drop down should appear and you should select “Empirical Study.”
- Go back to the top search bar and enter in your search terms being sure to select "APA Full Text" and "Peer-Reviewed".
- Click "Search" to see your results.
