The big Everything search box on the library's homepage is a great place to search for articles.  

These strategies can help you locate qualitative and quantitative articles as you search library databases.

  • Limit your search to "peer-reviewed" journals.  Research studies that use qualitative and quantitative methods are published in peer reviewed journals. Not every article in a peer reviewed journal will be a research study, but limiting your results to articles in these journals will help you narrow the pool of articles you are looking through.
