SAGE Research Methods

Discover a Method

Example Method: Surveys Research

Possibly, you read about a method in a research article, but you don't completely understand the details. Using the Methods Map, you are able to search specific methods, and even look at broader, narrower, and related methods. Once you find the method you want to learn more about, you can "Search all the content..." about the method within Sage Research Methods.

Consider the search below... a research article talked about using surveys to collect their data. What terms are broader or narrower, or are there related terms? This video contains no sound.

Explore the Resources

Content about Online Surveys ... there is a lot available within the results for online surveys, including books, reference materials, journal articles, datasets, cases, videos, and more.

This section will look at three of the resources available through SAGE Research Methods when learning about online surveys: Books, Cases, and Videos. Be sure to check out all the available content when you're reviewing your own method. The videos contain no sound.

Books (including handbooks, encyclopedias, Little Blue Books, and Little Green Books) -- all fully online and accessible! Read about surveys for research, learn how surveys developed, and discover how to implement one for your project.

Cases -- read stories from real-life researchers about their projects. Learn about implementing survey methods, and the ups and downs of conducting real world research.

Videos -- would you rather hear from the expert than read a book? Watch a video about a survey method, hear about top tips for designing questionnaires, or listen to the types of survey formats.
