Editorial

Synaesthesia, the topic of this month's cover feature, can be thought of as a 'union of the senses'. Now I am the first to admit that it may be a tad self-aggrandising to describe what we are trying to do with The Psychologist and the Research Digest as a union of the senses, but I have an editorial to write so please bear with me...

Over the years we have developed the print version of The Psychologist to hopefully offer a more rewarding visual experience, and on our relaunched website at www.thepsychologist.bps.org.uk we have audio and video (stopping just short of smell-o-vision). Over on the hugely popular Research Digest blog (www.bps.org.uk/digest), our first ever podcast is imminent.

But more than that, we are trying to provide a union of ideas... a place where all corners of our wonderfully varied discipline can come together, and reach out beyond boundaries too (see p.128 for a good example).

If what we do is not to your taste, you can change that - see thepsychologist.bps.org.uk/contribute and get in touch. Am I making sense?
