SAGE Research Methods supports research at all levels by providing material to guide users through every step of the research process. Read on to learn more about what this resources can do for you, and how to access it!
SAGE Research Methods is the essential online tool for researchers; it is the ultimate methods library designed to guide users to the content they need to learn about their method.
The core database provides materials that focus on the research process and design, helping users design methodologies, understand particular methods, identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up findings.
This resource that acknowledges and mitigates an issue often left ignored: an unfamiliarity with physically conducting research. By making use of their database; watching videos, reading cases, and practicing data analysis; you can learn more about the reality of research and conduct your own more efficiently.
