Avicenna Research Institute (ARI) is proud to announce and celebrate the 11th year of the publication of Journal of Reproduction and Infertility (JRI). During all these years and despite the presence of a noticeable number of fertility/ infertility related journals both at national and international levels, JRI has been able to secure a place in the scientific community of the country, especially among the medical doctors and fertility/infertility specialists.
Furthermore, the "Commission for the Evaluation of Medical Sciences Journals" of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education that evaluates and assigns the journals to one of the three different ranks has chosen JRI as one of the first ranked journals of the country.
Gaining high on the aforementioned parameters, JRI has achieved the 4th place among 146 national journals. Being among the top ranked journals in Iran, we believe that such an achievement is impossible without wining the minds of the scientific community and high standards of publication.
As one of the objectives of any journal is to build a place for researchers to voice their scientific findings and put them to test and criticism by peer-reviewers internationally, our Editorial board gradually moved towards publishing the journal in English. Thus based on the demand for full-text English articles and that this language has become the tool for scientific communication, we decided to aim for a larger audience by publishing the journal in English; a decision which was warmly welcomed by the authors.
Publishing JRI in English language would not only increase its audience but would also promote the journals quality in every possible aspect.
Diverse coverage of subjects, timely online publication and serving as "open access" journal have encouraged many international researchers to choose JRI for the publication of their articles.
At present JRI website offers full text Persian article with English abstracts to it's readers. However following our decision to publish JRI in English, the website will be upgraded to full text English articles with Persian abstract.
Therefore we hope that by receiving more high quality English papers from both national and international researchers in the field of reproduction and infertility, we could reach our goal which is "Being indexed in International databases".
