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, you should see several search bars under a header called “Look For.”
- Type in your desired search in the search bars.
- Then, look under the following header called “Only show content where.”
- Click on the drop down beside “None Selected” and select “Methodology.”
- Once you select “Methodology,” another drop down should appear and you should select “Empirical Study.”
- Under this same header, make sure to also select “Full Text” and “Peer-Reviewed Journals only.”
- Click “Search” to see your results.
