In the Web of Science Social Sciences Citation Index RPR is ranked in both Political Science, and Public Administration. It currently has an impact factor of 2.0 (2020). RPR has a CiteScore of 4.0 and is ranked 63/213 in the Public Administration category of Scopus (2022).

As the RPR is part of the STEP section (Science, Technology and Environmental Politics) of the American Political Science Association (APSA), the journal has a special focus on issues related to these policy fields. Of course we are always open to receive contributions on other relevant issues. We are always happy to receive new submissions and proposals for special issues.
