This month we are excited to launch a new opportunity to expand research methods learning through free resources provided by SAGE Research Methods: #MonthlyMethods. Each month we will be opening up free resources such as case studies, videos, and book chapters from the SAGE Research Methods platform focusing on a different research method each month. June’s method was qualitative interviewing.
While these resources were only available throughout June on Twitter, we are providing special access for one extra month to each resource to MethodSpace users. Here’s what we shared this month!
Video: “Tips for Conducting a Qualitative Interview”
#MonthlyMethods started off strong by featuring a tutorial filled with tips for conducting a qualitative interview from Dr. Cecilia Orphan. This video provides a look into the importance of organization, rapport, and follow-ups in the qualitative interview process.
Watch this video now with this special link just for MethodSpace users. Available until July 31st.
Book Chapter: “Designing and Conducting Research with Online Interviews” from Cases in Online Interview Research
This free chapter of Janet Salmons’ book Cases in Online Interview Research introduces readers to using online interviews for research and how using technology in research influences all parts of the study.

Case Study: “Using the Senses in Qualitative Interview Research: Practical Strategies”
In this case study, Marilys Guillemin and Anna Harris discuss using the five senses in qualitative research interviews. Interviews can be improved by introducing a method called sensory awareness which uses sensory questions or prompts in qualitative interviews.
