I have carried out this task once, but our journal editors, NZJP
included, carry it out regularly over years.
Consistent with the directives of the New Zealand Psychological Society, NZJP will continue to focus on empirical, review, theoretical discussion manuscripts pertinent to the broad field of psychology in New Zealand.
Students whose articles are published in NZJP will be automatically considered for the Award to be announced at the Society's Annual Conference.
NZJP developed in several positive ways during the time that Mike O'Driscoll was Editor, and the publication is running very effectively with its current policy and procedures.
I am also grateful to Linden Williams, NZJP Business Manager, for her work in producing the Journal.
Bryan Paynter was Editor of the NZJP
from 1987 until 1996, and appropriately due to his passion for the correct use of the English language, remained as copy editor until his death in April this year.
