SAGE Publishing announces collaboration with the South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS)

December 12, 2016

London, UKSAGE Publishing, a leading independent and academic publisher, is delighted to announce collaboration with the South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS) to support its Doctoral Training programme (DTP) as awarded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). SeNSS is a consortium formed of 10 leading UK universities, all of which are engaged in cutting-edge social science research and training.

Katie Metzler, Head of Methods Innovation, SAGE Publishing commented:

“Given SAGE’s unique position in the Research Methods publishing landscape, and SeNSS’s ambition to provide world class social science research training, infrastructure and expertise, this partnership is a fantastic opportunity to not only cross collaborate and share ideas, but to collectively support the development of the next generation of social science researchers. This collaboration will enable us, as a group, to better respond to the rapid changes currently facing the social sciences, and to develop resources for teaching and research that meet the needs of today’s postgraduates.

SAGE is credited with being an early driver in developing, publishing and supporting social science research methods. Today SAGE publishes over 1,200 textbooks, reference works and journals in research methods, as well as a suite of online products. Through the publication of  the ‘Little Green Books’ and the ‘Little Blue Books’, SAGE has been held up as a pioneering publisher of qualitative methods and evaluation journals, helping to shape the research methods landscape as we know it today. 

As part of this partnership SAGE will be providing strategic support for the development of the SeNSS DTP programme, alongside access to our online platform SAGE Research Methods and our brand new SAGE Research Methods Video collection, and will offer networking, internship and publishing opportunities to staff and doctoral students.

Professor Sharmit Saggar, Director SeNSS DTP further remarked:

“A key priority for the SeNSS DTP is to support our PhD graduates who are able to move between, and communicate with both academic and practitioner communities. This is in part achieved through collaboration with organisations such as SAGE Publishing. As a publisher with a longstanding history of both publishing and shaping the field of research methods, we are confident that this partnership will be of mutual benefit, creating a platform to share knowledge and resources and to develop together the training materials to support the next generation of researchers and practitioners.”
