SAGE Research Methods: Home

Quick Links


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 research guide will help you in your exploration of research methods in the social sciences. In this guide are links to find resources in library catalogs, article databases, image databases, digital collection, and recommended free websites. It will also guide you in finding the best literature to enable you to choose a methodology and launch into your research project.  

Please feel free to contact either me if you have any further questions or want to make suggestions for additions and corrections to this guide.
