SAGE Research Methods is a fantastic collection of e-resources that provide authoritative information on how to perform hundreds of research methods, both qualitative and quantitative.
You will find dictionaries and encyclopedias for definitions; books and articles which cover methods in depth; and currently we also have trial access to streaming videos.
We find the Methods Map useful for exploring terms and themes. You can also search for specific methods and methodologies.
