There are many databases listed on our Biology Research Guide that will identify, and in many cases, provide full-text journal articles that would be considered "primary research studies".

  •  Because even scholarly publications include not only research articles but also commentary, editorials, letters, reviews and other content that would NOT qualify as a research, study, it's important to recognize the attributes of a research article.  
  • Below are links to our Biology Guide as well as a guide from Suffolk University which also helps you learn how to recognize the attributes.
