The following databases have an option to limit your search to articles that contain a qualitative or a quantitative study:
Both of these databases can be accessed from the A – Z Database List. Choose "P" from the alphabet near the top/middle of the page and then find PsycARTICLES or PsycINFO 1887 - Current on the list of databases available there.
Once you are in the database, click on the “Advanced Search” link under the search box.
Enter your search keywords into the search box at the top of the page. Then, look towards the bottom of the page, where there is a “Methodology” scroll box that includes the options “Qualitative Study” and “Quantitative Study.”
Select the Methodology option that you need, and continue with your search. The resulting articles will be only those that contain the qualitative or quantitative study methodology that you chose. Be sure to review the full text of the article to ensure that it contains all of the study elements required for your assignment.
