A current awareness resource for students & faculty members in Business & Economics

New business research methods resource!

Published by Mark Bodnar

I'm very pleased to announce that SFU researchers now have access to a new business-focused module within our Sage Research Methods Online database!

Sage Research Methods: Business combines practical how-to guides, case studies of real research projects, video tutorials, and practice datasets, resulting in a well-rounded learning experience for all those conducting academic or workplace studies. 

This new SRM module is aimed at a range of expertise levels, making it perfect for both novice and experienced researchers, or as a refresher for mid-career professionals returning to academia for an advanced degree. Spanning the entire process, from identifying a testable question to applying the results in decision-making, this collection equips users with the skills and knowledge to undertake effective and robust business (and economics!) research.

Key stats: This new Business content in Sage Research Methods Online includes 330+ multimedia titles focused on business data & analysis: 161 cases, 27 datasets, 116 videos, and 33 how-to guides. 

Plus...20+ new titles will be added annually to the collection, ensuring that you can stay current with the latest tools & trends!

Finally, as with most other Sage eResources, our Sage Research Methods Online database (including this new Business module) is also available for remote access by SFU alumni

Hope you find it useful!
