This article analyzes the scientific literature on k-means clustering and considers how this method is used in psychological studies, based on a sample of articles. It is shown that the majority of publications contains insufficient description of k-means clustering procedures, which can lead to non-reproducibility of research results. This article describes in detail the general steps to follow to perform a k-mean clustering analysis and the decisions to be taken in accordance with its use in the research practice. Recommendations for further improving the quality of scientific papers using k-means clustering are given.
