With this edition, you'll receive 'The Psychologist Guide to University Life': the fourth of these leaï¬‚ets, this one kindly supported by Routledge Psychology. As ever, we hope you can help us get these evidence-based tips to the intended audience: new students from all subjects. There is an online version, and we have more hard copies available. And if you would sponsor our 'Guide to Pets', or have ideas for others, please get in touch!
This issue also features a debate, between Cordelia Fine and Joe Herbert. Each month we say on the inside front cover that The Psychologist 'provides a forum for communication, discussion and controversy', but I'm the ï¬rst to admit there's not enough genuine debate in our pages. If you think you could change that, particularly via our new 'Underrated/Overrated' format, get in touch. And if you're nervous about being forthright, look for inspiration to Erica Burman (p.52), Elizabeth Sigmund (p.26), Leo Abse (p.84), and Dame Theresa Marteau (p.66), who says it's the inaction you'll regret!.
