Why Publish with POR?

Thorough, Unbiased, Fast and Transparent Review

The POR review process is unbiased and efficient:

  • The POR review template ensures that the review process is comprehensive and objective.

  • The real-time interaction between the author and the reviewers speeds up the review process enabling research findings to be published in a timely manner.


POR articles are indexed in a number of major international digital archives and repositories, such as PubMed Central, Scopus, Web of Science Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), Google Scholar. For additional details on specific indexing, please see journal's About page.

Article Promotion

Articles and Special Issues are promoted through Twitter, and when appropriate, press releases, further increasing the impact of the article.
