The library has many resources to assist you with your topic:

  • "quantitative and qualitative journals" and
  • "Does ethnicity have a role in childhood obesity, if so how can health and balance be implemented to decrease obesity in children?”

We suggest searching our Locate Journals by Title, located on the Library's homepage at http://my.limestone.edu/library.  Use the following search terms to locate journals on obesity and children:

  • obesity
  • pediatric obesity
  • Journal of Obesity

Once you select the journal title, you will be directed to a listing of databases where you can find quantitative and qualitative journals on your topic.  You can search the entire journal or select an individual database.  For instance, if you select the Journal of Obesity and select one of the following databases: Gale Nursing Resource Center, Health and Wellness Resource Center, or Health Reference Center Academic, you can limit your articles to either quantitative or qualitative by using the Advanced Search link.  Use either of the following search terms in the advanced section of the database:

  • obesity AND qualitative
  • obesity AND pediatric AND qualitative
  • obesity AND quantitative
  • obesity AND pediatric AND quantitative

You could also search our CINAHL Complete database at http://libguides.limestone.edu/content.php?pid=360472&sid=2947558.  Look for Clinical Queries (scroll down the page) where you will find both qualitative and quantative limiters.
