“SAGE has over 50 years of experience publishing high-quality, innovative research methods resources to support those teaching, learning and doing research,” commented Katie Metzler, Head of Methods Innovation at SAGE. “With the launch of this video collection aimed at helping students and researchers develop the skills they need to conduct research and succeed in academia, we’re further expanding the range of content available via the library on our award-winning platform for researchers, SAGE Research Methods.”

The videos are hosted on the SRM platform, an expansive research methods library with more than 1,000 books, reference works, journal articles, and instructional videos by world-leading academics from across the social sciences.

SAGE began publishing streaming videos in 2015 to support pedagogical, curricular and research needs across the social sciences. Titled SAGE Video, the nine collections include Business & Management, Counseling & Psychotherapy, Criminology & Criminal Justice, Education, Media, Communication & Cultural Studies, Politics & International relations, Psychology, Sociology, and the collections associated with SRM.

Instructors looking to utilize the videos in the classroom can create clips of relevant content, customize video play speed, and embed videos or clips into webpages and course management systems, among other features. Users can also download video transcripts, follow along as the transcripts scroll on the screen during playback, and click on any word within the transcripts to go to that point in the video.
