SAGE Research Methods

Research Methods in Anthropology

We have numerous resources for learning Anthropological methods. One of the best is the SAGE Research Methods Database: 

Digital Data Management for a New Generation
The American Anthropological Association has designed an online tool to help instructors in teaching about data management as an integral component of research design and data collection. These materials are geared toward early training in best practices. Such practices ultimately support long-term management—including upload into digital data archives and institutional repositories—and facilitate data sharing where appropriate.

Use the Open Science Framework (OSF) to manage your work
OSF is a tool that helps you manage, store, and keep safe your research materials. Find out more about using it, or get help from our Data Services team.
