Clinical Child and Family Psychology Review, founded by USC faculty member Ron Prinz (Research Consortium on Children and Families) and Virginia Tech collaborator Tom Ollendick, attained an impressive impact factor of 4.22 in the respected Thomson Reuters 2013 Journal Citation Report. Prinz was instrumental in establishing the Springer journal in 1998 and has continued as Co-Editor-in-Chief. Featured in the September and December 2013 issues of the journal is a special series on issues related to military families and the impact of war on child development and family well-being.
