Identifying and Locating Empirical Articles

Empirical Articles vs Review Articles

Empirical articles are written to share the results of original research. Their authors will share their findings, including results, data, and ideas for future research. This will allow other researchers to learn more and conduct further studies.

Review articles are written to compare and discuss the results of multiple articles. They may be structured similarly to original research articles, but they are synthesizing what others have written about, rather than reporting on their own research.
