This month we have a special feature on alcohol use, and I’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to raise a glass of some sort to Dr Christian Jarrett. He moves on this month after more than 16 years as the founding editor of our Research Digest.

Christian has constantly driven the Digest on, from its early days as an email service aimed largely at sixth form students and their teachers, to a blog with a skilled team of writers, a strong social media presence, live events, a podcast (see p.17) and more. We bring psychology, and the Society, to millions of readers across the world each year.

Through extensive media coverage, publishing partners and imitators I believe it’s no exaggeration to say that the Digest has changed the way evidence-based psychology is communicated to diverse audiences. Christian leaves with a legacy and our very best wishes.

Viewing our glass as half full, there will now be opportunities to help take the Digest into its next era: keep an eye on the blog.
