I'm professor of criminal justice and criminology at Georgia State University (GSU). I founded CrimRxiv, the field's open access repository and hub. I now serve as its associate director for sustainability. I am starting a utilitarian company for no-cost learning materials (e.g., textbooks and ancillaries). As a utilitarian, my moral duty is to improve the world for the greater good, to the greatest extent I can. I strive to provide students, taxpayers,1 and my other supporters2 with a clear and concrete return-on-investment (ROI). I do applied research to invent, implement, and refine high-ROI strategies that make everyone happier. At a minimum, for every dollar I’m given, my goal is to save or make stakeholders at least two dollars. Before the next decade, I want to achieve a 10x ROI. Currently, my priorities are, one, improving the quality and reducing the cost of learning materials for students; and, two, increasing the quality and quantity of open access to criminology outputs (e.g., articles, books, data, code, learning materials, everything). I also do cyber- and digital-criminology with the Evidence-Based Cybersecurity Research Group, with a focus on deterrence, prevention, and offender-decision making. Prior to, I applied that focus to active drug dealers, robbers, and shoplifters, along with “theorizing method.” On this website, you'll find my CV and open access to my publications. Here are links to my web profiles. At a glance (and last I checked), my impact includes saving students millions of (US) dollars on learning materials; ~42,000 users of this website and ~73,000 pageviews; ~131,000 users and ~261,000 pageviews of CrimRxiv; 1741 citations and an h-index of 25. My neologisms are “open criminology” and “proterrence.”

Note: Three papers on my CV are not listed above because I am unsure which files are their preprints and postprints: “Crime in Motion” (in On Retaliation); “Consequences of Expected and Observed Victim Resistance for Offender Violence During Robbery Events” (in The Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency); and, “25 Years of Crime and Social Control” (in Criminology Theory). Also, I wrote guides for editors and self-publishers that are only on COADO’s website.
