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.

Grant Writing Lab

The Office of Research and Technology Transfer has opened a Grant Writing Laboratory in the Alvin Sherman Library in Room 2048. The Grant Writing Laboratory will be open to NSU faculty and staff to work with the new Grant Writing Manager, Roxana Ross, on grant proposals and grant projects.

All aspects of proposal development will be addressed in the new Grant Writing Laboratory, from brainstorming, grant/project planning, and funding research, to proposal writing. The services offered in the Grant Writing Laboratory are closely coordinated with existing services offered by the Office of Grants & Contracts, and intended to provide faculty with additional support in their grant seeking efforts.
