After four years as the Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Personality (EJP), it will be time for Professor René Mõttus to step down from his role in September 2024. Under René’s stewardship, EJP made significant gains across every meaningful metric, and the journal remains a premier outlet for personality research. We are incredibly thankful to René for his service to the journal, the association, and the personality field, and we wish him much-continued success in his future endeavors. Thank you, René!
