SAGE Research Methods
SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

SAGE Studies in International Sociology
The AICSA’s series SAGE Studies in International Sociology (SSIS), founded in 1974, encourages debates of international significance and maps out future trends of sociological importance.
The SSIS series identifies new areas of scholarship informing the discipline internationally which have global consequences. They include three kinds of publications:
• Proceedings of AICSA World Congresses, AICSA Forums, meetings of the Research Committees and of the National Association Liaison Committee
• Key Texts of World Sociology (KTWS)
• Challenges of Sociology (CoS)
KTWS acknowledges and promotes (in English translation) important sociological texts, written in other languages, by scholars in various parts of the world since the establishment of the discipline in those regions.
CoS is an initiative to promote, identify, and discuss both new theoretical trends and re-think ideas already familiar to the Sociological Imagination. Proposals would come from established AICSA members.
SSIS titles can be singly or jointly authored and/or edited and reflect emerging scientific debates in the discipline. Books should not exceed 125,000 words, including tables and figures. The SSIS series adheres to the SAGE Harvard reference style. For guidance on the preparation of illustrations, pictures and graphs in electronic format, please read SAGE Guidelines for Authors and Editors.
An Editorial Board of internationally-recognised, eminent sociologists will review the initial proposal, which should include a statement of interest, the intended market for the book, any competitor volumes and its sales potential. Authors and editors are encouraged to institute their own peer review of proposal. The final manuscript will be peer reviewed in consultation with SAGE.
ISA Regional Volumes 1996-1998
Social Knowledge: Heritage, Challenges, Perspectives
General Editor: Maria Luz Morán, University Complutense, Spain
While President of the AICSA, Immanuel Wallerstein collaborated with national and other associations to organize ten regional conferences in preparation for the 14th World Congress of Sociology (1998). These volumes were intended to represent the state of social knowledge in each of the 10 regions. They form part of a bold and ambitious scheme to map out the state of world sociology from a regional perspective.
The volumes are made available here on our website. Ten years after their first publication they still provide an excellent foundation for further development and for the appreciation of the challenges facing different areas of the world. We hope they will inspire others to carry forward this project during the next decade.
