Q. What is the best way to search for a "qualitative research" article?


This is an excellent question. To find artices, search in the databases.  

Quantitative research frequently includes graphs, charts, and tables, among other figures, which can be searched for in many of the databases, qualitative research often does not include these features.

As a suggestion, try adding keywords to your searches that relate to qualitative methods.  Some words to try include:

  • simply "qualitative" and your topic
  • but also "survey", "interview", "inquiry", "ethnography", and "phenomenology"

If you need additional help locating research, contact your Campus Library/ARC and ask a librarian to help you search for research on your specific topic.
