SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

 *Core coverage refers to sources which will be indexed and abstracted in their entirety (i.e. cover to cover), while "priority" coverage refers to sources from which we will include only those articles which are relevant to the field.

**Priority sources often contain a substantial amount of quality content relevant to the subjects, but also contain a number of articles covering topics not related to the field of study.
