Just in time for the new academic year, we now have access to new Sage e-resources…
Sage Research Methods Video: Practical Research and Academic Skills – This newest collection of streaming video on the SAGE Research Methods platform offers support on the practical skills that researchers need to successfully complete their research. Key areas such as writing a research proposal, planning and designing a research project and securing ethical approval are explicitly covered. Practical skills such as project management, writing for publication, presenting work, and building networks are also presented through helpful explanatory videos. This video collection will give researchers the confidence to successfully navigate their research work, take responsibility for their professional development and identify the transferable skills they need to progress their careers.
