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.
We now subscribe to the Arts and Science XV package from JSTOR. Arts & Sciences XV has extensive coverage in the humanities, social sciences and sciences, including literature, film, art, music, religion, classical studies, history, education, economics, political science, and sociology.
This collection currently has 81 titles, it will have more than 150 titles by 2018. See a list of the available titles here. These have been added to DiscoverEd. As further titles are made available by JSTOR, these will automatically be added to DiscoverEd.
JSTOR is also listed on the Databases AZ list.
