Special Series


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).

In response to the broad scope of the journal, the editorial team have decided to create a series of special collections, taking the form of a commissioned ‘special series’, edited by a Guest Editor along with one of our Associate Editors.

Reproduction and Fertility is a fully open-access journal, and therefore all the articles included in the special series are free to read by all.
