The purpose is to pool our collective skills and knowledge to benefit both the research '''practitioner''' and the research '''consumer'''. The unique ability of a wiki is that anyone, including you, and edit the pages and add what you know, so the pages are continuously updated as new knowledge is integrated. The goal is to create a concrete and practical knowledge database.

This part of PsychWiki is a compendium/advice about the research process (Research Methods / Statistics / Writing & Evaluating Research) created and owned by the research community. The purpose is to pool our collective skills and knowledge to benefit both the research practitioner and the research consumer. The unique ability of a wiki is that anyone, including you, and edit the pages and add what you know, so the pages are continuously updated as new knowledge is integrated. The goal is to create a concrete and practical knowledge database.

As can be seen in the diagram below, there are five modules color coded for easy reference. For every concept there is a companion "Fe40.png" button that provides a concrete example to illustrate each concept.
