In a dizzying couple of years, we have redeveloped both The Psychologist and Research Digest websites, launched apps, produced a regular podcast and branched out into live events. It's important that we reach out to diverse audiences in new ways, but I am left with a nagging sense that we have neglected those of you who still like to hold The Psychologist in your hands, sit down with a cup of tea or flick through it on the bus. So this is a relaunch for you, the print lovers.

Whether or not you like the new direction, please be assured that we set out on this path after careful consideration of reader surveys, along with much discussion at our Editorial Advisory Committee.

I think back to a comment in one of those surveys: 'it seems more of a magazine than anything'. Yes - we believe that magazines matter (p.40), and we are proud to be one.

Do engage with us on Twitter @psychmag, or email, write, call, pop round... we hope you stay with us on this journey, because together we can reach great places.
