SAGE Research Methods Online has been live for two months now and we’ve had a fantastic response from librarians as well as researchers and students. Since going live on January 4, we’ve had visits from 192 countries including the Kingdom of Tonga! We’ve had some really good feedback, too. One researcher sent us the following note: “It’s honesty excellent. I can’t count how many companies have set out with a vision as big as this, but SRMO has actually achieved it. I just came across this by accident, but I’ve already told my entire research unit about it… THANK YOU!”
The thanks really goes to all of you for trying out the product and for all of the great feedback. This is a user-driven product so all ideas for improving your user experience are welcome! Some of the new development expected in our next release (end of March) includes improved author browsing, SRMO Lists enhancement, and easy access to MARC Records. Development projects underway include enhanced video pages, creation of video speaker profile pages, and added help buttons. More book, journal, and video content will be added later this year.
