Search results page


Basic and Advanced

In basic search, you search first and can filter the search results second. In advanced search, you can apply filters first. You don't need to filter by video content. Only videos appear in the results. 

Advanced search also allows you to search by author, to confine a search to specific fields (e.g. title) and to construct Boolean searches. The author is the speaker in the video, often an academic or practitioner.

Note that not all filters are applicable. E.g. the filters for disciplines other than the ones listed above (business & management, counseling & psychotherapy, etc.) aren't.

Basic search box with advanced search link

To start a new search, select SAGE Video at the tops of search results or select it under Collections at the top of the page.

Search Results
