These manuals are faculty-oriented guides designed to help course instructors implement SAGE Video content within their teaching practices. Whether delivering lectures, research assignments, class discussion, or different forms of assessment, the following documents are intended to help instructors think about how they might use video in their course teaching, providing practical examples for implementation. Written by academic faculty members in the relevant disciplines, each Instructor’s Manual is organized by content type, describing the value of using that particular content type in a given discipline, then selects a video example and lists the courses in which this could be used. The manuals offer carefully curated clips of that content and the key concepts in which the clips will aid learning, and provide a variety of different course contexts where these clips can enhance instruction, such as assignments and assessments.

Five Pillars of SAGE Video Content
We pride ourselves on the following elements core to SAGE Video:
- A multitude of experts have participated: academics, tutors and practitioners including many of our authors, editors and our partnering academic societies
- A team of Editorial Board members have overseen collection development from helping us refine the overall content strategy and developing the taxonomy, to auditing selections and recommending videos to include
- Our in-house subject editorial experts at SAGE have contributed to the content strategy
Each collection contains a multitude of different content types designed to meet the needs of different end users, such as the undergraduate student, the graduate student, faculty needing video support in their teaching, or researchers looking for content to aid their academic work. The content types that can be found in the SAGE Video collections are:
- Archival Content: Typically historical footage from the archives, almost certainly licensed or purchased content, representing key historical figures or events in their space and time (e.g. interviews with classic theorists or scientists discussing famous experiments).
- Definition: Comprises two types of video: 1) a SAGE Short, a 1-2 minute description of a key concept by a leading academic, with some elevation of that concept (e.g. how it's seen in research, the real world, in practice); 2) Or a 7-10 minute video by a Reference author examining a concept's meaning in depth, looking at its relationship with other concepts, current research trends, and historical contexts surrounding the foundation of that concept.
- Documentary: Almost always a licensed film handling a subject matter in long-form, this might be a BBC film examining the rise of obesity in children, or another documentary addressing the issue of race in society etc.
- Interview: Can be either 1) a SAGE Expert interview of about 40-45 minutes (segmented into 13-15 questions/topics) with a leading academic in the field and going into depth about their experience in given field and/observations on trajectories, or 2) another video interview with an academic or practitioner (equally segmented into chapters).
- Lecture: Could be either an originally filmed SAGE Lecture or a licensed lecture from another source, these longer form videos will be engaging videos covering major syllabi topics in the social sciences.
- Panel Discussion: This might be SAGE Forum content filmed directly at a leading academic conference, or alternative video (licensed or otherwise) illustrating conversation or debates between people with differing opinions and perspectives.
- Tutorial: Can be either a 1) SAGE Tutorial providing overview of key course topic in 10-15 minutes, or 2) another Tutorial film explaining the principles of a key course topic; how to understand it, how to do it (e.g. a research method), what the key points about a key topic are etc.
- Raw/Observational Footage: Often, non-narrated and non-contextualised footage of an event or experience, for example classroom behaviour in an elementary school or a real counseling session.
- Video Case: Could be a SAGE Case Study which is a 10-15 film examining a certain context or problem under the microscope pertinent to syllabi needs (controversial research, business case, interesting real life event explaining behavior) to help shed further light on a key course topic; or 2) a 5-10 minute video from a SAGE Journal author explaining why their (top downloaded) paper was so impactful, how a student might decipher it further, what the paper leaves 'unanswered' in terms of further questions.
- In Practice: Either SAGE In Practice videos or other videos focusing on practitioner contexts, these are anywhere from 5-30 minute videos that help make connections between theory and practice for students by showing them real world application. These films will provide footage on location of authentic situations of people ‘in practice’ to provide students with real life context, whether that is with a teacher in a classroom, a counseling session for psychology, a newsroom for journalism, or an office for leadership.
- Conference: Again, could be a SAGE Forum original video filmed at an academic conference, or perhaps licensed content directly from a leading academic meeting. This might be a keynote presentation, a workshop, plenary session etc.
N.B. not all collections contain every content type, but they will be found across all of our collections.
- More than 60% of video in each collection is exclusively provided by SAGE, providing assurance that the collections will not be subject to flux and disruption
- SAGE's licensing approach means that any library purchasing a collection will own that content for the life of the file format provided
- SAGE is a company that is and always will be independent, which means we have full control of our business models and content development
Curricula and Discipline Matching
Each video is tagged against taxonomy terms for that subject collection; taxonomies are carefully created having examined the curricula and key areas of academic interest in these disciplines. As our commissioning approach is evidence-based, we are confident that the videos closely align with the curricula and disciplines for which they are intended.
Our authors, editors and other contributors are from around the world. Where we have identified regional differences in teaching and learning, different perspectives are provided in videos with different international voices.
The SAGE Knowledge Platform
SAGE Knowledge is home to an expansive range of SAGE eBook and eReference content alongside SAGE Video, containing over 4,600 titles. Content includes reference works, academic books, professional development titles and more. This cross-media platform allows users to search and browse over 10,000 items, video, book and reference titles within the Social Sciences.

Including “?” within your search term will indicate that you are looking for a result where “?” is a single missing character. A predictive text feature is also available via the Quick Search box. If you start typing a term that is included in the SAGE Video taxonomy, predictive text will pop up to help you with your search.
The SAGE Video Advanced Search feature has been designed to allow you to create a more targeted query for content within this product.
As with the Quick Search box, If you are searching for a multi-word phrase, enclose it in double quotes (“ ”) to look for exact matches.
The Advanced Search fields support Boolean queries. Use “AND”, “OR” and “NOT” to denote the relationship between conjoint terms. Including “*” within your search term will indicate that you are looking for results where “*” matches any number of missing characters. Including “?” within your search term will indicate that you are looking for a result where “?” is a single missing character.
Make your searches more precise by targeting specific fields using the drop-down menu to the right of the search box:

Q: Are COUNTER 4 reports subscription-sensitive?
A: Yes, all reports are subscription-sensitive. If you are trialing a resource during the time period of the report, that resource will appear in your report.
Q: Where can I learn more about COUNTER 4 reports and terminology?
Q: Why are some of my COUNTER 4 reports returning zeroes?
A: Fields should only contain zeroes if there was no usage during that time period. You may be seeing zeroes because your access to the title expired at some point during the time period (or if your free trial period ended), or if usage occurred the day the report was pulled (reports refresh with new data each day). If you believe there are errors on your report, please contact us.
If your question is not answered above, please Contact Us.
