"SAGE is keen to utilize the expertise of this global library team in order to provide the best product for their patrons, be they students, professors or professional researchers," said Martha Sedgwick, Senior Manager, New Online Product Development, SAGE.
SRMO will contain more than 100,000 pages of SAGE's leading book and reference material on research methods across the social and behavioral sciences, enhanced with editorially selected material from top SAGE journals. It will provide advanced search and discovery tools to support researchers as they explore relevant content, including a visual 'methods map' exploring connections between more than 2,000 methods, theories, and terms; and a 'methods lists' function, which will enable users to store and share selected content.
In total, more than 500 books will be available on SRMO, including the complete Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences (QASS) "Little Green Books" series. Approximately 9,000 pages of new content will be added each year.
The group is to advise on the product concept, business model and pricing, as well as providing feedback on the beta version of feature sets, content display, functionality and usability of SRMO.
"By involving librarians throughout the development they will play a key role in providing their crucial input on content and product features, as well as helping us to ensure that SRMO is user-friendly, can integrate easily with library systems, and will comply with required standards that support maximum discoverability," said Sedgwick.
