We propose that the best sites to search for SGRs outside the Local group are galaxies with active star formation. Different possibilities to observe SGR activity from these sites are discussed. In particular we searched for giant flares from M82, M83, NGC 253, and NGC 4945 in the BATSE data. We present a list of potential candidates, however, in our opinion no good candidates alike giant SGR flares were found. Still, hyperflares similar to the one of 27 December 2004 can be observed from… Expand
