The new SAGE Research Methods Video collection went live today, currently featuring 276 videos on the theory and practice of a variety of methodological approach. It also includes two videos that I filmed for SAGE in May 2015:
While accessing the video itself requires a subscription, the transcript is freely available to all users. You can find out more about my videos here; the whole video collection is available at http://methods.sagepub.com/video.
Yesterday, I spent the day filming two videos for the new SAGE Research Methods Video collection. The videos are a new initiative that aims to provide high quality video for instruction at university level and are produced by Lambent Productions. SAGE commissioned me to film both a video tutorial (i.e. a mini lecture) as well as a case study video, in which I talked about my own research, for them. The latter was based on a paper I previously published in SAGE Research Methods Cases. My videos are as follows (titles tbc):
- Video Tutorial: Introduction to Elite Interviewing
- Video Case Study: Stuying Presidential Activism Using Mixed Methods
My videos are part of the Politics & International Relations collection which will officially be launched in March 2016. Access to the videos itself will be subscription-based, yet the first 30 seconds and the full transcripts will be available non-subscribers as well. Until then, you can download my paper on elite interviewing in CEE here [subsribers] or here [open access version].
Filming the videos in my office at UCL SSEES
My methods case study ‘Semi-structured elite interviews in a nested analysis framework: Studying presidential activism in Central and Eastern Europe’ has been accepted for publication with SAGE Cases in Methodology, a unique collection of over 500 case studies for use in the teaching of research methods (more information here).
In my case study, I use the research design of my PhD thesis and my fieldwork experiences to shed light on the challenges of integrating qualitative interviews into a nested analysis framework. You can read an abstract here.
