Tips for Locating Scholarly Research (compiled by Laura Pope Robbins) According to the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, empirical research is defined as:

Relying on or derived from observation or experiment Verifiable or provable by means of observation or experiment There are several key characteristics that you can use to determine if an article is an empirical study. The article should include:

Statement about the methodology being used Either a list of the research questions to be answered or a statement about what question is being answered Definition of the group or phenomenon being studied Process used to study this group, including any controls or instruments, such as tests or surveys Finally, ask yourself: Could I recreate this study and test these results? If you can answer yes to all of the above, then you are most probably looking at an empirical study.*

  • Conquering empirical research. (2003, November 21). Mississippi State University Libraries. Retrieved January 9, 2004, from http://library.msstate.edu/li/tutorial/empirical/index.asp

There are two databases that allow you to narrow your research to empirical studies: ERIC and PsycINFO.
