There is a way in PubMed to check and see what type of research design an article is.
After you do a search, click on a title of an article:
After you click on the title, another page will open with more information about the article. Scroll toward the bottom and look for "Publication Types."
Click on on Publication Types. The area should expand and provide information about the article. This may include the type of article.
You should be aware that not all articles have this feature added to them.
