I can show you how to find scholarly articles with a study, and you can use the tips once you decide on your topic.

Below you will find the link to our A-Z Databases libguide. It organizes our databases by topic. Select the Science tab. Your best bets are Academic Source Complete, ProQuest and/or the Science Technology Collection. Just click the link for the database you want to use. When off campus, you'll have to log in with your last name and COM ID.

To find these types of articles in ProQuest, enter your search term into the search bar. Then check the Full Text and Peer-Reviewed boxes underneath the bar. Run the search. This will ensure you get many studies, but you can also click to expand the Subject heading from your result list, and select any phrase that mentions studies, trials, etc.

The other two databases require essentially the same steps, except for the fact that you can't select for Full Text or Peer-Reviewed articles until after you run your search. You will see those options on the left of your result list.

I'm also including How-To libguides for the databases, which also have search tips and info on using database tools such as obtaining citations.
