NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

SAGE Research Methods Online
The essential tool for researchers from the world’s leading research methods publisher – Coming this year!

SAGE Research Methods Online (SRMO) is an innovative and exciting new online tool designed to support researchers and students with their selection and understanding of research methods in the social and behavioral sciences.

Quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods researchers and students can quickly identify and understand the exact method that will facilitate the highest quality, methodologically sound research. SRMO contains more than 100,000 pages of SAGE book and reference material on research methods as well as editorially selected material from SAGE journals. More than 500 books will be available online through SRMO, including the complete Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences—the “Little Green Books” series from SAGE.

Features will include the following:

  • Methods Map
    SRMO allows you to create a visual search “map” from the taxonomy that links methods or authors. The Methods Map has a save/download/print feature and a bread crumb trail beneath it to easily return to a previous place in the search.
  • Methods Collections
    List the articles and chapters that you have found most useful and explore other users’ lists using the Methods Collections—and share your collections with colleagues and students.
  • Multimedia
    SRMO includes video interviews with some of the leading authors in the field—perfect for introductory information and classroom use.
  • Cite, print, and download content with ease
    SRMO makes it easy for you to cite, print, download, and share links.
  • About the author
    Find out more about the leading authors in your area of research and discover more about a particular author’s articles and books. There is also an option to see connected “key thinkers/authors” in the visual search tool.
  • Regularly updated content and features
    New books and articles, as well as new features, will be added each year to keep you current with the latest developments.
  • Must-have content
    SRMO provides you access to more than 100,000 pages of book, journal and reference content covering almost 2,000 qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods topics and terms from the world’s leading publisher of research methods.
