Why publish your article in PPRJ?

Ethical principles

PPRJ endorses the principles of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). Only original papers are eligible to be submitted to PPRJ. The journal endorses a strict policy against multiple submissions or redundant publications, as well as against plagiarism, citation manipulation, and data falsification or fabrication.  


High visibility

PPRJ is a free-to-publish and open-access journal, allowing maximum visibility of articles to a wide, global audience.

Exclusive online publication allows publishing large datasets or supplementary materials. It also allows color illustrations and the inclusion of relevant links. Finally, but of major relevance, the exclusive online publication also facilitates the interaction with Reference Management Software such as EndNote, Zotero, Docear, or Mendeley (among others).

Impact factor

PPRJ is a recently-established journal and, therefore, still does not have an impact factor. Nevertheless, our editorial team is invested in having the journal indexed in the main academic databases and search engines (e.g., PsycINFO, PubMed, SciELO, JSTOR, Scopus, Web of Science, Google Scholar). We are enthusiastic about receiving your contributions as authors of high-quality papers, for continuously promoting the relevance and visibility of PPRJ.


Authors of papers published in PPRJ retain the copyright and are free to reproduce and to disseminate their published work.
