A useful guide made available by the ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research), a member organization that maintains and provides access to datasets for research and instruction.  Pepperdine Libraries is a member.

Empirical Studies

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.
