*#*[http://books.apa.org/books.cfm?id=4316057 Reviewing Scientific Works in Psychology, Edited by Sternberg]. This book is a masterful example of experienced researchers passing-on their hard-won knowledge about the review process for journals, books, grants, etc., and at the same time providing concrete suggestions about to be a reviewer and evaluate other's works. I can't recommend enough this book to anyone who either evaluates researcher, or is a reviewer for journals/grants.

See below about the Overview of the Research Process to see how the class material is broken down into a series of five successive operational phases from generating the idea to disseminating the idea.
