We're a forum for a whole choir of voices in psychology. Obviously we love to showcase the work of the most eminent in the field, but we're proud to also offer early writing opportunities to those seeking to be heard for the first time. This year we're looking to nurture a few people more formally, with our'Voices In Psychology' programme (see p.34).

We posed the question 'Why do we need psychology? And what does psychology?', and this month we publish the best responses. We'll be offering some of these authors opportunities and guidance in order to amplify that voice in science communication.

For this year, our question is 'what makes a psychologist?' Does there tend to be anything distinct about psychologists, key to what drives them, common ground which can help drive our discipline forward? See also p.5. As ever,we hope to attract diverse voices. Our revamped 'one on one' spot (p.88) will seek to do the same, by showcasing arandom Society member each issue.
