Kinds of Information in Behavioral Science

For your Behavioral Science courses, you will usually be asked to find sources for your papers that report on research in the field. These kinds of sources might be called primary, empirical, or original research in your assignments. They are usually also peer-reviewed (see information on this page).  In some assignments faculty ask for academic, evidence-based, or scientific sources. 

No matter what your assignment says, you can tell if the articles you find include the information you need by looking for a methodology or methods section that explains how the study was designed and carried out, and a section that presents the results or findings. In some assignments faculty ask for academic or scientific sources. 

You can add keywords to your search to find this kind of information, such as:

method* -- this will find method, methods, methodology

(result* or find*) -- this will find either result, results, find, or findings

If you need help finding the right kind of information, ask a librarian!
