Sage Research Methods Cases

Expires: March 8, 2017

SAGE Research Methods Cases are stories of how real research projects were conducted. The collection provides more than 500 case studies, showing the challenges and successes of doing research, written by the researchers themselves. They explain why the researchers chose the methods they did, how they overcame problems in their research and what they might have done differently with hindsight: the realities of research that are missing from journal articles and textbooks. Cases are peer-reviewed and come with pedagogical tools including learning objectives and discussions questions. They can be used as a teaching tool to demonstrate a particular method and how it is applied in real research, or as inspiration to students who are preparing for their own research project.

Please send feedback about SRM Cases to Amber Gray.

University of Maine on WorldCat

The University of Maine on WorldCat service searches the entire OCLC WorldCat database, but displays locally owned materials in URSUS or MaineCat at the top of search results lists. (The local-materials-first display is a default setting, with the alternative being most-relevant-materials-first, even when not held locally.) It also displays article citations from selected major publishers.

The University of Maine on WorldCat database is not the equivalent of the URSUS or MaineCat catalogs. It is the OCLC WorldCat database, with only those UMaine-owned materials marked as library holdings in WorldCat presented first. For the most complete picture of University of Maine materials, and all links to our full-text resources such as e-books and e-journals, please use URSUS.


Please send feedback about trial databases to Deborah Rollins, Head, Collection Services Dept., unless otherwise noted below the database description.
