SAGE Research Methods Online (SRMO): the essential tool for researchers has been release in beta. SRMO provides advanced search and discovery tools to support researchers and students as they explore relevant content across the social and behavioral sciences, covering quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods. It was designed by iFactory.
“SRMO combines world-leading content from a broad range of sources—books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, journals, videos—with a truly unique search and discovery solution which we think is going to offer everyone from new students to advanced researchers a really useful service,” said Martha Sedgwick, Senior Manager, Online Products, SAGE. “We’ve had an incredibly positive response from both librarians and faculty since we opened the Beta version of SRMO, and their feedback during this period will enable us to enhance the platform even further.”
More than 100,000 pages of SAGE’s leading book and reference material on research methods are available through SRMO; a visual ‘methods map’ enables exploration of the connections between more than 1,400 unique methods, theories, and terms; and the SRMO List function will enable users to store and share selected content.
The open beta version of SRMO will be available until the product’s official launch in January 2011. During this period access will be free to anyone registering for a trial. For further information visit: http://srmo.sagepub.com/.
