Contents

This is my first contribution to The Psychologist, but as incoming Society President I will have the opportunity through the President's columns for a few more. My personal vision for the British Psychological Society is to securely position the Society as the learned Society for psychology and to be more outward looking in the world. The Society is busy working on its next strategic plan and this is the chance for all members to contribute.

I have long been a fan of The Psychologist because you never know when an item will catch your imagination, be professionally supportive or inspirational for teaching. I have often followed up items in The Psychologist directly with the authors, most recently over the 'Scottish Referendum Question'. A few years ago I responded to an article about 'altruism' as I contemplated retirement and involvement with the BPS.

This issue of The Psychologist contains a special feature on expert witness work following in the tradition of The Psychologist being unafraid of challenging issues.
