To find articles that report on empirical research, some keywords you might want to use could be:
population, study, results, discussion, data, variables, limitations, implications, survey, respondents, or conclusion.
Such terms should be searched as keywords rather than subject terms because they reflect the kind of language used in an article describing empirical research, but they are not the topic or subject of the study.
I am available for one on one research consultations, small group workshops, and walk ins. If you would like discuss your research more do not hesitate to reach out!
