Special Collections


Reproduction and Fertility publishes research and reviews on basic, translational and clinical reproduction and fertility, across all animal species, including humans. This is reflective of the remit of owning society, the Society for Reproduction and Fertility (SRF).

Special collections bring together some of the most influential and timely research, driving discoverability to increase article impact.

Our Special Collections, (some formerly known as ‘Special Series’), feature articles on key topics within reproductive biology, reflecting the journal’s broad scope. Alongside invited papers, the Editors also welcome submissions of original research and reviews relevant to a collection. Click on the collection titles to browse the articles and learn more about opportunities to submit your paper for inclusion.
