Impact (as of Sept, 2020)
The ISI web of science citation report: 2657 citations, average 33 per article, h-index=25; googlescholar report: 5,277 citations, h-index=35; researchgate report: 3,658 citations, h-index=29. Number of citations exceeds 500 for a review I co-authored in Drug and Alcohol Dependence in 2007. Other journals where I published are also of high impact (e.g., American Journal of Psychiatry, Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics). Impact (including on the general public, but also in the criminal justice system) is also evident as further described below (invited talks, consulting activities).
