Week 5 Empirical Research

Hello students hope you are all doing well,

Week 5 focuses on Empirical Research.

Empirical - based on, concerned with, or verifiable by observation or experience rather than theory or pure logic (Oxford English Dictionary, 2015)
The Scientific Method has it basis on empirical research. Making calculations based on observation experience rather than just theory. 
Empirical research generates knowledge derived from observation or experimentation as opposed to theoryTypically, empirical research articles are written in a standardized format that outline the research study or experiment and include the following sections:AbstractIntroduction and Literature ReviewMethodsResultsDiscussion or Conclusion
References (or literature cited)

For Academic Search Premier I would recommend using Emperical research as a keyword and then in the following keyword box type your subject.

Other possible searches are "empirical evidence" or even "observation"

Using Empirical evidence as a keyword search you should see Empirical research as a keyword in bold for the articles you examine. For your assignment paragraph I would like to see in your paper what material did the authors link to empirical research? what did they observe or examine?
