SAGE Research Methods allows students to explore different concepts of research methods, which can help them to design their research projects, understand particular methods, or identify useful new methods. As a result, students can conduct their research and write up their findings in a more efficient and structured way.
The content of the database is drawn from over 200,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference works, and is presented on an innovative platform with advanced search and discovery tools. In 2015, 49 new book and reference titles and 15 new videos featuring renowned scholars such as Marsha Henry (London School of Economics), Sharlene Hesse-Biber (Boston College) and Patrick Sturgis (University of Southampton) were added.
SAGE Research Methods Cases brings together hundreds of case studies of real social research. By demonstrating how methods have been used in actual projects, the case studies complement theoretical understanding by exploring the difficulties, nuances and real-life decisions that researchers face.
Sample cases are drawn from across the full range of social science disciplines and meet the needs of researchers internationally. Cases are can be searched by method, discipline or academic level. Learning objectives and discussion questions are also available for each case to support teaching and learning. Dozens of new cases were added to in 2015.
