New SAGE Campus Modules Also Help Researchers Navigate Publishing Process
The past week, SAGE Campus launched seven online courses to help instructors teach critical skills such as data gathering and literacy and to support researchers in their publishing endeavours. The seven new courses will be followed by nine more in July, bringing the SAGE Campus suite to 27 courses total and over 250 hours of material.
Now available for institution-wide access through library subscriptions, Campus’ new courses include:
Statistical Significance by Dr. John MacInnes – Explains statistical significance and p-values, how they are calculated, and how samples are used to measure and investigate people, organizations, and societies
Gather Your Data Online by Dr. Janet Salmons – Gives an overview of different data types and ways to find and generate them for research
Introduction to Journal Publishing: Why Publish? – Explains different publishing models and teaches how to take advantage of publishing opportunities
Publishing for Impact – Provides tips and tools to prepare a funding application that will get noticed and teaches how to write and present an article to impact both academia and society
Other courses launched this month are Research Question by Dr Zina O’Leary, Present Your Research, also by Dr. Zina O’Leary, and How to Write a Journal Article Pt. 1: Putting Your Article Together. July’s launch will include courses such as See Numbers in Data, Research Proposal, and Peer Review, Feedback, and Decisions.
Launched in 2017, Campus initially aimed to help social science researchers build data science skills. Four years later, the content of Campus has expanded significantly to support the teaching and learning of skills and research methods across all stages of academic study. The recently redesigned platform now allows for faculty to assign courses and track student progress and can be used in flipped classrooms or asynchronous teaching, as supplementary material, or to replace face-to-face learning.
“As the research and publishing landscapes continue to change and develop, it can be daunting for early career researchers to get started,” remarks Rachel Crookes, Head of SAGE Campus. “By working with instructors and researchers to better understand learning gaps—especially during a pandemic—and then bringing in expert instructors to write online courses, SAGE is taking another step to help develop the future of social scientists and research.”
