From PsychWiki - A Collaborative Psychology Wiki
The Research Process is a series of successive operational phases from generating the idea through dissemination in published form as journal articles, books, book chapters, posters at conferences, talks at conferences, talks at brownbags or invited talks, etc.
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. </p>
