On trial: SAGE Research Methods Cases

August 21, 2014 – 2:25 pm

ACU Library already subscribes to SAGE Research Methods Online (SRM), but this trial is for Cases, which is a new component on the SAGE Research Methods platform.

What are SAGE Research Methods Cases?

SAGE Research Methods Cases (SRMC) is a collection of over 350 case studies of real social research that faculty can use in their teaching. Specially commissioned and designed to help students understand often abstract methodological concepts by introducing them to cases of real research projects that are interesting and engaging and designed to add colour, context and understanding to the teaching of research methods or statistics”.

To search for case studies:

  • on SRM landing page along the top tool bar next to ‘Browse’ Open the Menu under Content and click on Cases – an alphabetical index should appear.
  • alternatively on the SRM landing page you could search for “big data” and several Case studies should come up – eg first one ‘The Use of ‘Big Data’ for Social Sciences Research: An Application to Corruption Research’ Mihaly Fazekas 2014.

We have SAGE Research Methods Cases on trial until 20 October.

Please take a look and send us your feedback via the quick online feedback form.
