This contains slides for a learning session entitled "The current crisis in psychology research in the Philippines: Reproducibility or producibility?" This session was held on September 20, 2018 at the 55th Psychological Association of the Philippines (PAP) Annual Convention. The slides are also downloadable as .pptx [here][1]. If you'd like to use them, please let me know: **Learning session abstract:** To establish the current state of psychological research in the country, participants who have completed or are currently completing graduate studies in psychology were asked what, in their opinion, are the most pressing issues in conducting psychological research in the Philippines. Thematic analysis of responses shows that in contrast with the reproducibility crisis gripping the field in other countries, an enduring “producibility crisis” continues to dominate the local research scene twenty years after Bernardo (1997) observed the lack of research culture among Filipino researchers. Limited resources (e.g., funding, time, database of local literature), low research efficacy (e.g., quantitative and qualitative analysis), and questionable conduct of research appear to contribute, among others, to the on-going predicament. Findings are discussed in terms of the need for collaborative solutions to improve the current state of local psychological research, including prospects of introducing the replication crisis in the training of psychology researchers.
