Sage Research Methods Online - Sage Publications 
SAGE Research Methods Online (SRMO) is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SRMO contains books, journals and videos. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand a particular method or identify a new method, and write up their research. Since SRMO focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used by researchers from the social sciences, health sciences and more.


Ulrichsweb (formerly Ulrich's Periodicals Directory) - ProQuest 
Details on periodical titles including journals, magazines, newspapers, and other types of serial publications on all subjects. Learn how to use Ulrichsweb to determine if an article is peer reviewed: Tutorial

  • Associate your ORCID
  • Build your publication list

Generate citation metrics from Web of Science

ResearcherID provides the global research community with an invaluable index to author information. By assigning a unique identifier to each author who participates, ResearcherID standardizes and clarifies author names and citations and makes your information search more straightforward and accessible.  Whether you are seeking citations for research, or leads to collaborators, thought leaders, speakers, editors, or reviewers, the unique ResearcherID will provide you with a clear avenue to the data you need.

Because ResearcherID is fully integrated with Web of Science™, you can use your profile to make sure you are getting properly credited for your work in Web of Science and use ResearcherID to find an author’s body of work.
