There are many databases at Cornell that are not presented in the EBSCO format. Find them listed by subject at this link. You can use a similar strategy to find empirical articles.  

You may also add specific statistical terms to your search, such as chi, t-test, p-value, or standard deviation. Try searching with terms used in the scientific method: method, results, discussion, or conclusion.
