Q. How do I find a research paper that has used ANOVA?
To find examples of scholarly research papers that have used the ANOVA analysis method, follow the steps below:
- Go to: the library homepage.
- In the EagleSearch box, type in the following: airlines AND ANOVA
- (See Search tips below for help composing your own searches.)
- Click on Search
You'll find that some articles will mention ANOVA in their title, but for most, you'll need to click on the "More Information" link to see if ANOVA is mentioned in the article's abstract.
- AND is used in most databases to ensure that each term is present somewhere in the search results: NextGen AND flight
- The asterisk (*) is a symbol that allows for variant word endings: refuel* = refuel, refueling, refueled, etc.
- Quotes are used to indicate that the words enclosed must be searched as a phrase: "human factors”
- OR is used between terms to indicate that either term is acceptable: aircraft OR airplane
Options to focus and limit your results are on the left side of the search results page. These include Scholarly & Peer-Review, Full Text Online, Publication Date, and more. For finding articles using ANOVA be sure to limit your results to Scholarly & Peer-Review.
For more information on this and other research methods, you may find the database Sage Research Methods useful.
