Founded in 1875, Al-Ahram (الأهرام‎, “The Pyramids”) is one of the longest-running newspapers in the Middle East. It has long been regarded as Egypt’s most authoritative and influential newspaper, and one of the most important newspapers in the Arab world, with a circulation of over 1 million. Prior to 1960, the newspaper was an independent publication and was renowned for its objectivity and independence. After being nationalized by President Nasser in 1960, Al-Ahram became the de facto voice of the Egyptian government and today the newspaper is managed by the Supreme Council of Press.

Al-Ahram has featured writings by some of the most important political and literary voices of the day, including Nobel Literature Prize winner Naguib Mahfouz, nationalist leaders Mustafa Kamil and Saad Zaghlul, as well as Salama Moussa, Taha Hussein, Yusuf Idris, Edward Said, Hamid Dabashi, and Anis Mansour

Saleem Takla, 1849-1892, the founder of Al-Ahram with his brother Beshara Takla

Three Million Citations and Growing

The destination for all aspects of literature research, teaching and learning

Literary research, teaching and learning is evolving in exciting ways. Scholars are stepping beyond the Western canon to analyze diverse and lesser-known voices. Faculty are tapping multiple formats, like audio and video, to create immersive experiences for their students.

Developed in collaboration with faculty, scholars and librarians leading the call for a comprehensive literature resource, ProQuest One Literature is now the destination for all aspects of literature research, teaching and learning.

A discipline-specific user experience offers scholars and students a path to understand and interpret authors, movements and diverse points of view, and expert indexing brings disparate formats and literary content together to support the unique needs of literary researchers.

This is an upgrade from the Literature Online (LION) resource

The study of literature is evolving–and it’s time for a modern approach to support it.

  • Multi-Format & Varied Content: primary texts, full-text journals, historic literary criticism, videos, dissertations, eBooks and more
  • Diversity: a focus on diversity—black and global writers supports diversity in scholarship, bringing different perspective to researchers & students
  • Community:  A product of the community, for the community.  Informed by collaboration with respected advisors, development partners and product early adopters
  • Discipline User Experience: an experience centered around authors, movements and works help users frame and interpret their research topics. A literature user experience highlights varied content types across criticism, primary works, reference, dissertations, video and more

SAGE Research Methods Cases & Cases 2

SAGE Research Methods Medicine & Health

SAGE Research Methods Cases are stories of how real research projects were conducted. The collection provides more than 1100 case studies, showing the challenges and successes of doing research, written by the researchers themselves.  They explain why the researchers chose the methods they did, how they overcame problems in their research and what they might have done differently with hindsight: the realities of research that are missing from journal articles and textbooks. Cases are peer-reviewed and come with pedagogical tools including learning objectives and discussions questions. They can be used as a teaching tool to demonstrate a particular method and how it is applied in real research, or as inspiration to students who are preparing for their own research project.


SAGE Research Methods Datasets

SAGE Research Methods Datasets 2

SAGE Research Methods Datasets is a collection of teaching datasets and instructional guides that give students a chance to learn data analysis by practicing themselves. This bank of topical, engaging practice datasets, indexed by method and data type, are optimized to use in classroom exercises or in exam papers, saving faculty members hours spent sourcing and cleaning data themselves. The decisions researchers make when analyzing data can seem like a black box for students—through practicing analysis using real data from SAGE Research Methods Datasets, students can see how analytic decisions are made, helping them to become confident researchers.

SAGE Research Methods Video

SAGE Research Methods Video Practical Research and Academic Skills

SAGE Video Data Science

SAGE Research Methods Video contains more than 125 hours of video, including tutorials, case study videos, expert interviews, and more, covering the entire research methods and statistics curriculum. The videos can help to bring methods to life: instead of reading about how to conduct a focus group, students can watch one in action. Stimulate class discussions by assigning videos for pre-class viewing, or use a clip in class to provide an alternative viewpoint. Videos can also be embedded into course management systems for exam preparation. Through these videos, 60% of which are exclusive to SAGE, students can find extra help and support to guide them through every step of their research project and succeed in their research methods course.
