    This might not be the forum, or the website that could help me best. Though I had a methodological questions concerning the human sciences.

    To be blunt, my question is essentially: where do you obtain the data from all the studies you find in the libraries and in article databases? Other than single case studies, they mostly show you means, SE and other descriptive stats, as well as t and values. Do you use inferential statistics on these stats found in the article or do you obtain the entire dataset from the publisher?

    Either. Original data is best, but you'll need to go through your Internal Review board and assure them that all records are appropriately de-identified.
