Finding journal articles that contain statistical analyses is not a
difficult task, as long as you know where and how
There are several
databases that are good places to look for journal articles that contain
statistically-analyzed data. The following are some databases that we
recommend, but by no means are they the only databases that are out
links will ONLY work if you are trying to access them from on-campus!
For off-campus access use the link at the bottom of the list.
(covers all sciences - biology, chemistry, psychology, sociology, etc.)
BioOne (mostly straight biology)
Business Source Premier(covers
business and economics)
Academic Search Complete(covers
ERIC (covers education)
keyword is the absolute best way to find journal articles containing
I want to find a journal article that deals with education and
Search the ERIC database, because ERIC covers educational topics.
Search using the keywords "education and t-test" because those are the two
ideas I want to find in one journal article.
From the list of
articles that comes up, choose an article that seems interesting and
relevant and click on the title. Scan the abstract and contents and
you will find that the authors of this article dealing with education
analyzed their data using a t-test. If you don't like this article or
can't find as many results as you'd like, change your keywords - choose
another test to search or choose another topic to search - i.e. search for
z-test instead of t-test or search psychology instead of education...
If you have any problems finding a journal article
that covers what you are interested in, ask any reference librarian in the
library, or contact
your math librarian directly for some help.
