Reproduction is an official journal of the Society of Reproduction and Fertility (SRF), alongside sister journal Reproduction and Fertility. Reproduction was formed in 2001 when the Society merged its two journals, the Journal of Reproduction and Fertility and Reviews of Reproduction.
Reproduction publishes original research articles and topical reviews on the subject of reproductive and developmental biology, and reproductive medicine. The journal will consider publication of high-quality meta-analyses; these should be submitted to the research papers category. The journal considers studies in humans and all animal species, and will publish clinical studies if they advance our understanding of the underlying causes and/or mechanisms of disease.
Scientific excellence and broad interest to our readership are the most important criteria during the peer review process. The journal publishes articles that make a clear advance in the field, whether of mechanistic, descriptive or technical focus. Articles that substantiate new or controversial reports are welcomed if they are noteworthy and advance the field. Topics include, but are not limited to, reproductive immunology, reproductive toxicology, stem cells, environmental effects on reproductive potential and health (eg obesity), extracellular vesicles, fertility preservation and epigenetic effects on reproductive and developmental processes.
