Philippine Psychological Sciences: Opportunities and Challenges for Development

In recent decades, global psychological research has grown considerably, so much so that some researches on the development of sciences have suggested that psychological science is now one of the major hubs of scientific work (Boyack, Klavans, & Borner, 2005), distinct from the other social sciences and similar to chemistry, physics, and the biological sciences. A quick search of the leading indexing and abstracting system of psychology journals, PsycInfo, indicates that there are now in the list some 2,447 journals. How has Philippine psychology developed amidst this growth on the global scale? This paper addresses the question by examining data on research training and knowledge production of Philippine-based psychologists. The data are reviewed with the goal of identifying the areas of growth and opportunities for further development, and also discussing the constraints and challenges that characterize these developments.
