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.

These individual datasets have now been added to DiscoverEd following the Sage Research Methods platform change which involved replacing all of our existing records for the books, videos and case studies we already had a subscription to.

The new Sage Research Methods website has been fully redesigned to make it more modern and user friendly.  It is also fully responsive to the different kinds of mobile devices that may be used.  Sage have also improved the discoverability of content with an improved search and methods map.  Browse options have  been enhanced to allow browsing by discipline, content type and method topic.
