Patient-Reported Outcomes has become a prominent subject in clinical trials; clinical practice; patient, family, community, and public engagement; qualitative studies on the development and application of PROs; and studies of the social and behavioral determinants of health using PRO measures. Therefore, the journal's scope reflects the wide application of patient-reported outcomes and research in the biological and social sciences. Manuscript submissions of original work are subjected to peer review for originality, scientific quality and relevance to a broad readership. JPRO welcomes scientific articles in a number of categories, which are further defined in the journal’s Submission Guidelines.

JPRO levies an article-processing charge of $1500 USD for research and reviews, and $750 USD for short report articles, commentaries and book reviews accepted for publication. Additional information regarding fees and funding is available on the journal’s website here.


The Journal of Patient-Reported Outcomes (JPRO) is seeking to recruit two new Associate Editors to begin three-year terms early in 2018. Eligible persons will have published scientific works in the fields of patient-reported outcomes and health-related quality of life, and preferably have published some of that work in the sister International Society of Quality of Life Research journal,  Quality of Life Research. Ideally potential Associate Editors would have served as a reviewer for Quality of Life Research.
