SAGE Research Methods scored 4/5 stars in Advisor Reviews from The Charleston Advisor, October 2012
“With content from hundreds of dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks (including the “Little Green Book” and “Little Blue Book” series) along with journal content and videos, SRM provides both broad and deep access to quality resources for social and health sciences researchers… An in-depth taxonomy and item-level tagging help with searching, while the Methods Map and Methods List are dynamic and useful resources.” – Amy Hoseth, Associate Professor and Liaison Librarian, Colorado State University
SAGE Research Methods (formerly SAGE Research Methods Online) Highly Recommended by Choice
Reviewed in January 2012 issue. [Visited Oct'11] This unique tool supports research in the social and health sciences. Containing content from SAGE reference books, monographs, journal literature, and videos, the SAGE Research Methods Online (SRMO) database provides students of research methods and researchers with a wealth of information about research in both theoretical and practical terms. Yet it is more than a simple compilation of e-books. The clean interface offers both standard search options and the Methods Map. The latter is an innovative visualization tool that maps the relationships between methods; it is similar in some ways to the taxonomy of a subject thesaurus, but in this context more akin to the hierarchies that qualitative researchers use to conceptualize research results. SRMO provides a social media option for users to share content in a public list (as an instructor might do for a class), or to store items for future reference. It will be particularly useful for those institutions that do not have the volumes in SAGE's "Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences" series, aka the "little green books," and other SAGE publications. However, the video content provides fresh material that does not appear to be available elsewhere. Faculty who teach research methods will find the content enormously useful, as will students and researchers looking for supplementary information on research design and analysis--both qualitative and quantitative. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty. – M. F. Jones, East Tennessee State University
"SAGE's activities reported here suggest that in some areas social sciences may actually be ahead of the rest on the innovation curve…!"
