Answer

An empirical article is an article that appears in a scholarly publication and reports the results of original research.  Original research refers to the gathering and analysis of either quantitative or qualitative data to answer a specific question.

Empirical articles are organized into sections that detail different aspects of the study. Often they will be noted with headings such as:
