Welcome to all of our new and returning research students at City. We have a great new research resource at CityLibrary called Sage Research Methods Online Videos It’s easy to access from the library Databases A-Z which is on the left hand side of the Library website.
It includes hours of video tutorials, interviews and case studies and covers the research lifecyle. The interface is quite clear and professional, there is a search box to search for video content and it is possible to browse by research method, discipline or video type (for example interview, documentary..).
There are lots of videos of academics discussing specific research questions and parts of the research process, ranging from 1 minute to approx 15 minutes. A strength of the resource is that presenters share their own experiences and insights and top tips for doing research. To the side of the video, there’s a transcript of everything that the academics say. This can be really useful for note taking and you can download a PDF of the transcript to read offline.
Here is a list of some videos for starting your research.
