Empirical Scholarly Articles

EmpiricalOn occasion students are asked to do research and find scholarly articles on a given topic. In some cases, the students are asked to find scholarly articles that contain "empirical" research. A good definition of "empirical research" is located here:

I believe the best way to find scholarly articles containing empirical research in our library's resources is to use the UMD version of Google Scholar:

To find your empirical articles, plug in appropriate keywords into the search box. For example, if you are looking for empirical articles about human resources in Japan, search for:

Human resources and Japan and empirical

In some instances the article may be empirical in nature, but not contain the word "empirical."
So, you should also substitute other words for empirical. Use words like "Study" or "Observation" or "Experiment" or "Survey" or "Questionnaire" or "Interview." These terms could also help you to find article containing empirical research.


If you have questions, or are encountering problems, please contact me.
