Impact Factor Collection


Reproduction journal impact factor graphic

Reproduction’s 2019 Impact Factor has increased to 3.206. The journal’s five-year Impact Factor remains high at 3.646, showing the continued relevance of research published in the journal.

This result is testament to the high quality of authors’ published articles and the dedication of the editorial board and reviewers, who together ensure Reproduction is a leading journal in the field of reproductive biology.

We extend our thanks profusely to the world-class Editors, authors and reviewers who make the journal what it is, and to Co-Editors-in-Chief Professor Greg FitzHarris and Professor Chris Price for their leadership.

To recognise the new Impact Factor, the Editorial Team has put together a collection of articles that received the most citations in 2019, and contributed to this positive result.

All articles are freely available without subscription.
