Exploring New Resources: SAGE Research Methods Online — Case Studies


The Library has added a number of cool new electronic resources in the past few months. This weekly series will provide some ideas on how you can get the most out of them. Questions? Contact Paula Hammett hammett@sonoma.edu.Image has the Sage logo followed by the words "research methods."

What is it?

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students understand particular research methods, identify a new method, design research projects, or read case studies that provide examples of how a particular research method can be used.

When should I use it?

If you have to do a focus group for a class project and you’re not sure what a focus group is or how to create one, you can start here. Use Sage Research Methods if you want to see a case study example that uses a particular social research method, so you can get ideas for your own research project.

 An example:
