You can find research articles in most of the Library databases by including the keyword research in your search.
Research articles are a type of primary source that reports on research that the author(s) did.
Here is an example of a search that you can do in the Academic Search Complete database to find research articles:
1. On the Library homepage, type your general term in the main search box.
Example: online education
2. If you have not already logged in to the Walden Library databases, you will be prompted to log in with your myWalden Portal user name and password.
3. Once you are in the database, you can add the term research to the search.
The search set up should look like this:
In the first search box
In the second search box
Here is an example image of the search:
4. If you are interested in only peer-reviewed research articles, scroll down and on the left side, click in the box for Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals.
5. Click on the Search button to run your search.
6. That should give you a list of results. As you look through the articles, check to make sure the article you choose does in fact report on research the author(s) did.
