Research Methods is an online search tool for finding
information about research methodologies.
It may be particularly helpful if you are in the process of designing,
conducting or writing up a research project.
For example, use it to answer questions about your chosen research
method. The resource is relevant to a
range of disciplines including the social sciences and health sciences.
There are also options for browsing the database as well as a Methods Map (located under the Methodologies drop-down menu), which is a visual search tool. The Methods Map may be useful if you are not sure which research method to use.
SAGE Research Methods is available now via StarPlus. Alternatively, follow this link and click Connect to Sage Research Methods - you will be prompted to log into MUSE.
