Undoubtedly the most rewarding aspect of having been editor of The Psychologist for 20 years is that I hear from lots of increasingly well-established, award winning psychologists who took their early steps in disseminating their work or views with us. We have always offered such opportunities – my own first piece was for the student writer competition in February 1997! – but it has become increasingly important, as our output has increased in print and online, that we identify and nurture new writing talent.
Our Voices In Psychology programme is our more formalised, regular attempt to do that. This month we publish a selection of responses to the question ‘What are the barriers to our profession, and how can we remove them?’ (p.30). Congratulations to Joanna Atkinson, Nicol. Zarotti, Charlotte Leedale, Fiona Gilton and all our ‘runners up’ for covering such a range of aspects in an engaging style.
Do send feedback; we appreciate the connection as we work remotely.
