In the last years, there is a growing debate on reproducibility and quality of empirical results within the psychological science. In his target article, Massimo Grassi (2018), as many other scholars, argues that psychological science is living a reproducibility crisis and that the only way to overcome it is changing the paradigm. Moving from this view, the present work challenges the thesis of a current reproducibility crisis in psychology. Moreover, it proposes a new perspective concerning reproducibility and quality issues, by looking at two usually overlooked aspects: the epistemological ground of psychological science and the way in which editorial system and careers are organized.
