Abstract

In the last ten years psychology has been accused of non-reliable and nonreplicable results.

Through a literature review and practical exemplifications, the current paper introduces the debate on psychology's credibility crisis, and discusses the contribution that reliable and updated techniques of data analysis could give in response to this credibility crisis.
