SAGE Ocean is passionate about bringing the best research tools to the social sciences. The social science research tools directory aims to achieve just that. We've searched the internet and spoke to our community and we came up with a short list of tools that we believe are some of the most used tools out there. We have not tested these tools ourselves so we do not endorse them as best tools to use for your research.

The directory focuses on analysis tools and groups them by type of analysis they can be used for. The directory also distinguishes between 3 key tool attributes: price, code license and platforms it runs on. We hope this will give you a quick way to find the right tools for you.



This is the first release of the directory. We are keen to know if we've missed any good tools and we are keen to work with researchers that have experience with computational tools. You can get in touch by clicking the 'Suggest a tool' button below.
