Sage Research Methods Update

We recently took out a subscription to the Datasets component of Sage Research Methods following a successful trial.

The datasets included in SAGE Research Methods Datasets are taken from government sources and academic research and demonstrate both qualitative and quantitative methods. Each dataset is presented with an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to best demonstrate how the method is applied.
