Misattribution of PCL-R Authorship:
Recently, more than 20 articles, chapters, theses, and presentations have used a variation of the following citation for the Hare PCL-R: Hare, R. D., & Vertommen, H. (1991). The Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised. Multi-Health Systems. In some cases reference is to the 2003 edition of the PCL-R, and in other cases the reference omits the location of the publisher. Vertommen is not a co-author of the PCL-R. He is senior author of the Dutch translation of the PCL-R.
One author said the mistake was due to the use of an "automatic citation management software" program. If any reader of this note has used such a program and can help to determine the origin of this misattribution, please contact me. I would be most appreciative.
The correct citation for the PCL-R is Hare, R. D. (2003). The Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised, 2nd edition. Toronto, ON: Multi-Health Systems.

Important new research by Randy Salekin argues persuasively that, "Callous–unemotional traits have been incorporated into the DSM-5 and may be considered for the ICD-11. Despite the centrality of callous–unemotional traits, it is only one of three dimensions of child psychopathy. It is proposed that the grandiose–manipulative and daring–impulsive traits should be considered and potentially accepted as specifiers for conduct disorder in the DSM-5 and ICD-11."
