SAGE Publishing has announced the launch of a collection of more than 480 streaming videos covering the social sciences which aim to help students and researchers develop research skills and learn more about the research process. The collection, SAGE Research Methods Video, focuses on research methods and statistics and covers topics such as research design, data collection and statistical analysis.
The collection contains more than 125 hours of content, and includes step-by-step tutorials, interviews with experts, mini-documentaries, and videos showing, for example, real focus groups being conducted. A 15 hour introductory statistics course is included, together with shorter courses on presentation skills, designing surveys, and planning research projects.
The collection is hosted on the SAGE Research Methods platform, which allows users to customise playback speed, make clips, and embed videos into web pages or course management systems. Multiple citation options, MARC Records and DOIs, abstracts and metadata are available for the videos.
