SAGE, the world's leading independent academic publisher has today launched Methodspace.com; a public social network dedicated to the discussion of research methods online.

Methodspace aims to bring together researchers from across the academic spectrum looking for support and advice on any aspect of methodology. Registered users can participate in discussions about methodology issues and controversies; find out about relevant conferences and events; and discover and review new resources in methods, including free book chapters and journal articles. The site was launched to a private beta audience in February 2009.

"We are thrilled by the speed and scale of the response to our beta launch," said Ziyad Marar, Deputy Managing Director and Publishing Director, SAGE. "Methodspace will enable connections and dialogue, without any restrictions on discipline or geography. The site has a growing community of international researchers, university lecturers and postgraduate students from around the world."

A unique area, research methods is the common thread that unites all researchers, with research methodology a fundamental part of every research journey. SAGE is recognized worldwide as the leading publisher in research methods, supporting researchers for more than forty years with a collection of more than 1200 books, journals and reference works in this diverse field.

"We intend that Methodspace should be the online hub for research methods, with the community driving the discussions and debates," said Marar. Whether you are looking for resources in research methods, want to discuss a particular approach, or just connect with other researchers in a particular field, Methodspace aims to be the first place that any professor, researcher or student will turn."
