〜どころ is often encountered as a suffix in the form 〜どころか, in which case it means far from ~. However, it may also rarely be encountered as a suffix without the か, in which case the meaning is equivalent to substituting 〜なもの, which typically serves to emphasize the meaning of the word or phrase it follows.
For example:
しょうかい
紹介
されている
ほん
ゆうめい
有名
どころ
おお
です
Many of the books introduced are famous.
