New Sage Journal Titles – Research Methods

Falvey Memorial Library recently subscribed to a large package of social science journals from Sage Journals Online.  These titles are now available in full text online through library resources.

The My Tools feature of Sage Journals Online allows users to establish email alerts, saved searches, marked citations, and favorite journals through personal accounts.  If you need assistance setting up a personal account or taking advantage of these tools, please contact Kristyna.

Here are some highlights from the newly acquired titles from the Research Methods & Evaluation Collection.  Check back with this blog for more highlights from other disciplines!

Action Research
Holdings: 2003 – present
Action Research is an new international, interdisciplinary, peer reviewed, quarterly published refereed journal which is a forum for the development of the theory and practice of action research. The journal publishes quality articles on accounts of action research projects, explorations in the philosophy and methodology of action research, and considerations of the nature of quality in action research practice.

Qualitative Inquiry
Holdings: 1997 – present
Qualitative Inquiry (QIX) provides an interdisciplinary forum for qualitative methodology and related issues in the human sciences. The journal publishes refereed research articles that experiment with manuscript form and content, and focus on methodological issues raised by qualitative research rather than the content or results of the research. QI also addresses advances in specific methodological strategies or techniques.

Statistical Modelling
Holdings: 2001- present
Statistical Modelling’s primary aim is to publish original and high-quality articles that recognize statistical modelling as the general framework for the application of statistical ideas. Submissions must reflect important developments, extensions, and applications in statistical modelling. The journal also encourages submissions that describe scientifically interesting, complex or novel statistical modelling aspects from a wide diversity of disciplines, and submissions that embrace the diversity of applied statistical modelling.


Introducing the Social Sciences Blog

The Communication Reference Blog has been expanded to create the new Social Sciences Blog.  Although the blog will include all the same great posts about new books, featured resources, and library news, it will include topics of particular interest to Communication, Psychology, Sociology, Education, and Gender/Women’s Studies students and faculty.  Students and faculty in these departments will be able to discover new library resources in interdisciplinary areas of interest, in addition to monitoring only those posts related to their own discipline.

Either follow the Social Sciences Blog, or check in with a particular feed:
