Contents

2013 marks 25 years since the very first issue of The Psychologist, and a decade of our offshoot the Research Digest. I hope you will forgive us a slightly self-congratulatory focus in parts of this edition, alongside an important set of articles on individual differences.

After a pat on the back and a bit of cake, we look to the next 25 years with more tweaks to the publication. 'Media' and 'Book reviews' become a bigger, broader and hopefully better 'Reviews' section; there are changes to 'Careers' (e.g. see p.58); and opposite you will see a prominent reminder that Society members can access The Psychologist on tablet, smartphone and Kindle.
For the final word this month, I hand over to Professor David Lavallee, Chair of the Psychologist and Digest Policy Committee.

I challenged him to come up with 10 words on the Research Digest and 25 words on The Psychologist, and he said: 'The Digest is the definitive source for psychological science evidence. The Psychologist is central to the BPS and will continue to be a valued, regular and important communication outlet for the entire membership. Happy birthday!'
Dr Jon Sutton
