SAGE Research Methods Online

Sage Research Methods (SRM) is a fantastic collection of books and case studies exploring and illustrating research methods for the social sciences

You can browse within SRM to different disciplines e.g. Science, Health, Marketing or Business and limit your results to the type of information you need e.g. books or statistical sources.

If you are unsure if the research method or analysis can be applied to your subject of study or assignment, you may like to check your assignment brief or with a member of the teaching team within the module.


  • Books include Little Green Books and Little Blue Books, short guides to quantitative and qualitative research methods
  • Over 1000 case studies illustrating research methods
  • SRM Project Planner - accessible advice on every stage of the research process from defining a question to writing up and sharing your research
  • We don't subscribe to everything from SRM - use 'Refine By' > 'Available to me' when searching and browsing to see what is available at SHU

Research approaches
