You would be searching for a “Journal Article”. The terms “article” and “study” and “research” can be fairly generic and may apply to research done by drug companies, organisations even newspapers – they don’t necessarily have the same rigour or level of proof.

You may have to go to a university library to obtain Journal Articles for free, otherwise you can try “Google Scholar”. Some stuff is free, but often only very old articles. You have to shell out for the latest research (generally).
