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.

  1. Click on the following link to get to the main library page:
  2. From this page, look in the top-middle, Hover over Collections and then choose Databases.
  3. When the page loads, look on the left under Browse by Letter and select A.
  4. When the next page loads, scroll down the page and select the link to APA PsycNet.
  5. Once the database loads, scroll down to where it says Filters.
  6. Select Select Filters and from the dropdown menu choose Methodology
  7. Once you select Methodology, another drop down should appear and you should select Empirical Study.
  8. Go back to the top search bar and enter in your search terms being sure to select APA Full Text and Peer-Reviewed.
  9. Click Search to see your results.
