Evidence-based practice is the judicious use of the best current evidence in combination with clinical expertise and a patient's needs and desires in making decisions about his or her care.
To find articles that are more likely to describe quantitative research, look at the study types, study methods, or data analysis methods. The following image provides examples of the types of terms you can look for. Review your course text or notes for other terms specific to your field of study.
The following is an example of the terms you can put in your search to limit to Quantitative Articles:
(Quantitative OR Positivistic OR Experimental OR Clinical Trial OR Randomized Control Trial OR Validity OR Intervention OR T-test OR ANOVA)
This system isn’t perfect. You’ll still need to look at the Methods and Data Analysis/Results sections of the articles you find to make sure you have a truly quantitative study. (See the "Distinguishing Article Type" page to be sure you have a quantitative article.)
Also, check your article closely to see if you found a Mixed Methods study. These types of study include both quantitative and qualitative methods.
