Caution: Misinformation Ahead

Pharmaceutical companies often publish web pages that look like like they contain informative scholarly articles. However, the pharmaceutical companies use these web pages as a form of advertising for their products. These links may contain misinformation and should be used with caution as sources for research assignments.

Empirical Research

To find articles that report on empirical research, some keywords you might want to use:

study, results, discussion, data, variables, limitations, implications, survey, respondents, population, 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.

Multidisciplinary Databases

These online sources contain a broad range of sources and are places to start your research.
