Understanding Journal Articles
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.
An overview of the cognitive and neural organization of memory and learning.
