I would like to find what have been done in research about conceptual metaphor. I've looked into some database, e.g. ERIC, Sciencedirect, WileyOnlineLibrary, JSTOR, Cambridgecore, Taylor&Francis, etc. But I can find just a few research about conceptual metaphor. Does anyone have other resources or tips for searching?

Try George Lakoff and Mark Johnson's Metaphors we live by as a starter. This tiny book is widely available in libraries. It's going to give you an idea what to look for later. Additionally, there is a bibliography there as well.
