Empirical research articles report on original research - they are the primary sources of science. Databases include empirical articles but they also include literature review articles, secondary analysis of others' research, theoretical articles, etc. In order to focus your search on empirical articles, check to see if the database has a methodology limiter (like PsycInfo) or an article type limiter (like PubMed) so you can tell the database to only search for these articles. Note that many databases do not have this option, so you may need to add keywords to your search in order to help you find them. Try adding words like: data, statistics, methods, variable, hypotheses, findings, quant*, qual*, experiment, interviews, intervention, n=, to your search or look for these words in the abstract.
