SAGE Research Methods

an overview

Research Methods content is often theoretical and abstract and can be difficult to apply to real world scenarios. SAGE Research Methods Cases offers hundreds of case studies of actual research projects from many different disciplines to show how methods are applied. These cases add color and context to the more theoretical material found in SAGE Research Methods and underscore the nuances and decisions researchers face when designing projects.

You can do a quick search across all cases or search by Subject area, Academic Level, and/or Methods used. Cases content is also included in search results on SAGE Research Methods and on the Methods Map.

Each Case contains:

  • Keyword tagging for academic subject/discipline, academic level, methods used, and topics of the research
  • Learning objectives to underscore what the particular case demonstrates
  • Links to the published articles, when available
  • Exercises and discussion questions
