SAGE Research Methods Online (SRMO) is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SRM contains content from over 770 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and “Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos (full-transcripts, closed-captioning, and citation information is available for all videos). Please see the title list below for more details about the content. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

Please note that it is no longer possible to download a complete book on SRMO, books can only be downloaded by chapter (PDF).
