Videos for SAGE Research Methods collection published

SAGE Research methods video collection

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.

Filming for new SAGE Research Methods Video collection

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].

Case study for ‘SAGE Cases in Methodology’: Elite interviews in a nested analysis framework

SAGE_logoMy 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.
