Qualitative research papers are those with descriptive information rather than numerical data. Often there is no comparison made between groups, or the comparison is narrative.

Adding one or more of the following terms to your search strategy, (use a new box, you can join multiple terms together with OR between them) will help limit your results to qualitative works:

  • Case studies
  • Action research
  • Qualitative analysis
  • Qualitative methods
  • Qualitative studies

For general information on searching for articles consult the Database Tutorials found on our Research Guide for “NU” Students or the research guide for your subject area.
