Trials: SAGE Research Methods/SAGE Research Methods Cases/SAGE Research Methods Video

SAGE Research Methods is the ultimate methods library with more than 1000 books, reference works, journal articles, and instructional videos by world-leading academics from across the social sciences, including the largest collection of qualitative methods books available online from any scholarly publisher. Also included is SAGE Research Methods Datasets which is a collection of teaching datasets and instructional guides that give students a chance to learn data analysis by practicing themselves. This bank of topical, engaging practice datasets, indexed by method and data type, are optimized to use in classroom exercises or in exam papers, saving faculty members hours spent sourcing and cleaning data themselves.

The trial is active between 19th September and 29th December 2017 and can be accessed here.

SAGE Research Methods Cases are stories of how real research projects were conducted. The collection provides more than 600 case studies, showing the challenges and successes of doing research, written by the researchers themselves.  They explain why the researchers chose the methods they did, how they overcame problems in their research and what they might have done differently with hindsight: the realities of research that are missing from journal articles and textbooks. Cases are peer-reviewed and come with pedagogical tools including learning objectives and discussions questions. They can be used as a teaching tool to demonstrate a particular method and how it is applied in real research, or as inspiration to students who are preparing for their own research project. SAGE Research Methods Cases content can also be accessed directly via the link given for SAGE Research Methods, but the below link leads directly to the cases we have access to as part of our trial.

The trial is active between 19th September and 29th December 2017 and can be accessed here.

SAGE Research Methods Video contains more than 125 hours of video, including tutorials, case study videos, expert interviews, and more, covering the entire research methods and statistics curriculum. The videos can help to bring methods to life: instead of reading about how to conduct a focus group, students can watch one in action. Stimulate class discussions by assigning videos for pre-class viewing, or use a clip in class to provide an alternative viewpoint. Videos can also be embedded into course management systems for exam preparation. Through these videos, 60% of which are exclusive to SAGE, students can find extra help and support to guide them through every step of their research project and succeed in their research methods course.

The trial is active between 9th October and 1st December 2017 and can be accessed here.
