Why publishing your article in PPRJ?

High visibility

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

Speed of publication

One of the main missions of PPRJ is the quick dissemination of high-quality research and evidence-based practice in the field of psychology. PPRJ offers a fast publication schedule whilst maintaining rigorous and blind peer review. A fully electronic fast track system, together with a continuously growing high-quality network of reviewers, ensures short time for suggestions and decisions.

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

Impact factor

PPRJ is a recently-established journal and, therefore, still does not have 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 entusiastic 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.
