We have many databases, most listed on this Sciences database page, 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 primary research study, you need to be able to recognize the attributes of a research article.

We have a guide that can help you do that.  See
