•Different electronic structures of substitutional doped phosphorene nanoribbons are studied.•The electronic properties of the doped ribbons are strongly related to the valence electron number of foreign atoms.•The position of the unpaired electron can also greatly affect the magnetic properties of doped phosphorene nanoribbons.•The magnetic moment is delocalized on the edge for marginal doping, while localized around impurity atoms for central doping.
