While SAGE is proud of all of our products, we’re always delighted when they are recognized by others. Such is the case for a product we just launched in January called SAGE Research Methods Online (SRMO).
SAGE Research Methods Online is a tool designed to help create research projects and understand the methods behind them. SRMO links to authoritative content, including more than 600 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks as well as journal articles, and videos. Also unique to SRMO is the Methods Map, a visual search tool supported by a unique, complex taxonomy of research methods terms, methodologies, and people in the field.
It was the content and the Methods Map that were recently recognized. SRMO recently received the 2011 Magnum Opus Gold Award for Best Navigation for Electronic Publication or Web site and the 2011 Apex Award for One-of-a-Kind Electronic and Web Publications.
The Magnum Opus Awards are presented by ContentWise and the Content Marketing Institute in partnership with the Missouri School of Journalism. The awards, which are in their eighth year, recognize excellence in marketing, communication and design in more than 200 categories. Of the hundreds of entries received, SRMO was the only website or electronic publication honored for its excellence in website navigation.
Additionally, SRMO also won the 2011 APEX Award as “One-of-a-kind Electronic & Web Publication.” The APEX awards are given by Communications Concepts, Inc and recognize products and marketing in areas of communication. SRMO was one of three Electronic & Web Publications recognized in the subcategory with nearly 200 entries in the larger category.
