Subject Matter. JRP deals with a broad range of subject areas, but the journal has a relatively well-defined publication focus. You are invited to visit the JRP Concept Hierarchy page to get a clearer understanding of the journal's current focus. The journal seeks to (a) connect research-inclined persons working in different disciplinary, institutional, and practical contexts and (b) through this, extend the practice of research to progressively newer territories. Both these aims are expected to facilitate the wider purposes of promoting research education around the world and developing innovative forms of research in socially relevant areas.
Indexing & Archiving. JRP is included in Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), EBSCO, Evaluation Portal, Globethics.net, Index Copernicus, SciVerse Scopus, Thomson Reuters (Emerging Sources Citation Index), and Ulrich's Periodicals Directory.
