Q. How do I find empirical research articles on my topic?


Empirical research is published in books and scholarly & peer-reviewed journals. The UTSA libraries have several databases you can use to locate peer-reviewed articles from scholarly journals. 

Some databases allow you to limit your search by methodology. Or, try adding the keywords “empirical research” or just “empirical”

PsycINFO (Psychology)

  • Add the descriptor term Empirical Methods to your search
  • Choose “descriptor DE” from drop-down menu

ERIC (Education)

  • Add the keyword term empirical to your search
  • Choose “keyword KW” from drop-down menu
