Not all articles published in scholarly journals are empirical studies; you may want to review the characteristics of an empirical study before you conduct your research.
Citation Searching

To locate and retrieve articles or books that are cited in a bibliography or Works Cited page, use the Library Catalog to determine if Kresge Library owns the item. For example, to find the following article...

Cavaiola, Alan A. (1999). Suicidal behavior in chemically dependent adolescents. Adolescence 34(136): 735-744.

...conduct a Journal Title search in the Library Catalog [using the title of the journal - Adolescence - NOT the title of the article]. The results of this search indicate that Kresge Library owns this journal in print and online.
