SAGE Research Methods


Anyone doing research at a university - whether they are doing a student research project or dissertation, or planning a large scale study - needs to use the right tools to plan their study, gather their data, and make sense of their findings. These tools are the 'research methods' of the social sciences.  

This guide helps you in your exploration of research methods in the social sciences and features tips to find resources on the SAGE Research Methods platform. It will also direct you in finding the best literature to enable you to choose a methodology and launch into your research project.  

For additional assistance please feel free to contact the Library via Chat, email at, or by speaking with one of our Librarians.
