Editorial: Looking beyond the horizon – innovation in child psychology and psychiatry
R.M. Pasco Fearon
As readers will no doubt be well aware, the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry dedicates an entire issue, once a year, to state-of-the-art authoritative reviews of research on some of the central issues in our field.1 I like to think that in doing so we have been quietly undertaking a giant Pavlovian conditioning experiment: every year, as the spring flowers start to blossom (in the northern hemisphere at least), the nucleus accumbens of child psychologists and psychiatrists around the world begin to glow in anticipation of intellectual reward.
We hope you enjoy the full editorial of this Issue, which is free on the Wiley Online Library.
