Trial Databases: SAGE Research Methods and SAGE Research Methods Cases

OSU Libraries is trialing two Sage products: Sage Research Methods (SRM) and Sage Research Methods Cases (SRMC).

The SRM database includes tools and content to help you design your research projects, plan your study, learn about numerous methodological approaches, gather data, and make sense of your findings. SRM contains more than 600 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks as well as the entire Little Green Book (quantitative) and Little Blue Book (qualitative) series. SRM features a taxonomy of over 1400 methods terms and a Methods Map which visualizes relationships among methods terms, concepts, people, and literature.

SAGE Research Methods Cases is a collection of 500 case studies of real social research, specially commissioned and designed to help you understand abstract methodological concepts in practice. These case studies will complement your theoretical understanding by exploring the difficulties, nuances and real-life decisions that researchers face. SRMC has been carefully commissioned to match course content and to meet the needs of methods teachers, students and researchers, internationally. The collection is developed for use in class teaching or by students and researchers seeking applied understanding of research methods.  Each case is equipped with learning outcomes and discussion questions to guide and support understanding. Users can search or browse the cases by subject (discipline), academic level, methods used, and by the topic covered by the case.

This OSU Trial runs through 6/14/2014.
