Contents

There's an expectation - from the funding framework, from the public, from psychologists themselves - that our discipline should make a difference. It's all about 'impact'. What can The Psychologist do to reflect and facilitate this?

This month, I can point you to two attempts. On p.108, a discussion special considers if we are resigned to remaining quiet as the bombs fall in Syria or elsewhere, or whether psychologists can find a path to peace. On p.120, we hear from John Drury about his work, featured in the Society's 'impact portal' (www.bps.org.uk/impact).

The print/online integration is central to our own quest for 'impact': the discussion special began online and will hopefully continue there. Please do consider writing for us as one path to impact: you can reach more than 50,000 Society members, and a wider audience via our website and social media. It's a great time to contribute: see thepsychologist.bps.org.uk for guidance. And keep an eye out for our app: hopefully due in February! Follow us @psychmag for updates.
