What's New

New for 2017!

New titles in the Books & Reference, Cases, and Datasets collections are now live!  See the lists of added titles here:

In addition to the new titles, we are pleased to announce the release of 2 new tools to help users complete their research projects: Project Planner and Which Stats Test.  Both can be found under the Research Tools menu.

Project Planner

Conducting an original research project can be overwhelming.  From picking a topic to gathering data to choosing a method, where do you start? Project Planner is your step-by-step guide to a successful research project.  Start at the very beginning to learn why we do research in the first place, or skip around to steps that you’re currently working on.  Every step of research design is covered in short, engaging instructional sections with hand-selected related content for further reading or watching. Like a travel guide for your research project, Project Planner will give you the guidance you need to excel—even in the wee hours when your professor is unreachable!  

Which Stats Test

You’ve got a research question and you’ve chosen your data . . . so now what?  With the Which Stats Test tool, answering a handful of multiple-choice questions will provide you with a recommendation on which statistical method to use to analyze your data.  Each question will help you to interrogate your data, identify the number and types of variables you wish to compare and guide you to choose the right test for the comparison you are planning. And there is help available at every step with links to introductory material on SAGE Research Methods that will explain concepts and provide additional support to assist you when you get stuck. Further support is available by following the links to practice datasets where you can learn how to apply the appropriate statistical test on real social science data before you attempt analysis on your own.

More Cases!!

We are pleased to announce the release of a supplemental package of cases to give users even more options to find a case similar to their own study. Over the next 3 years, we will be adding 1500 new case studies to the supplement with deep dives into core disciplines in the social sciences. A preliminary title list is available.

SAGE Research Methods Video

The full SAGE Research Methods Video collection is now live!

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, 70% 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.
