This month's cover feature is a typically engaging and timely contribution from our staff journalist and Research Digest editor Dr Christian Jarrett. But it's the article from Roz Shafran, winner of the Society's Award for Distinguished Contributions to Professional Psychology, that I would like to direct your attention to.

Writing on 'the appliance of science', Shafran cites others who call for not just evidence-based practice, but practice-based evidence too. Bridging the academic/practitioner divide has always been a goal of the Society and The Psychologist, and I would love to hear how our members ensure that research has the desired impact on the ground. Has evidence-based practice reached all corners of the discipline? I feel there could be an article, special issue or even a regular feature in The Psychologist on this topic, so do get in touch on [email protected]. And as we near the end of another volume, remember that I welcome your comments on this year's issues of The Psychologist, to continue our own evidence-based practice!

(Dr Jon Sutton,  Editor)
