Editorial, June 2022

Jon Sutton introduces the issue.

Some of our editions are born with a theme; some achieve a theme as we're pulling them together; some have a theme thrust upon them in a last ditch attempt to write a coherent editorial. This issue falls in the latter category. 

The thread I'm going to follow is reputation, difference and inclusivity – perhaps not an unusual one in our pages. We say a fond farewell to fine psychologists in our obituaries pages; hear about 'academic entitlement' to special treatment in the Digest; and find Uta and Chris Frith immortalised in graphic biography form, with a consideration of the science behind reputation. We talk identity and difference with Jenny Terry and with Waveney Bushell. And we hear about a BPS presence at Pride, and the priorities of the Male Psychology Section

There's loads more, plus online extras. It's a busy time: we're reshaping both our staff and honorary teams, and gearing up for the lauch of our improved website and app. All this, and a special July/August issue to come…
