Aims and Scope
The Journal of Reproduction and Infertility (JRI) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access quarterly and publishes papers as the official journal of Avicenna Research Institute (ARI) affiliated to the Academic Center for Education, Culture and Research (ACECR) since 1999. JRI has continued to publish cutting-edge scientific papers in collaboration with Iranian Society of Embryology and Reproductive Biology (ISERB) since 2015. Its main focus is on reproduction, fertility and infertility, as broadly defined topics. It aims to bring the latest advances in reproductive medicine and stimulates further innovation by introducing relevant translational research in an on-line accessible format for the reader.
Moreover, specific topics covered by the journal include:
- Reproductive biology
- Reproductive gynecology
- Gynecologic oncology affecting fertility
- Reproductive endocrinology
- Reproductive immunology
- Reproductive physiology and pathology
- Andrology and embryology
- Preimplantation genetic diagnosis and prenatal diagnosis
- Sexually transmitted infections
- Reproductive law and bioethics
- Epidemiological and psychological studies concerning reproduction and infertility
JRI is characterized by the fast reporting of original research articles, clinical trials, review articles, case reports, letters to the editor, editorials across all areas of reproduction. Moreover, cellular, molecular, genetic, and epigenetic discoveries furthering our goals in understanding the biology of reproduction and underlying mechanisms are categorized among the welcomed topics by the journal. The focus on practice and evolution of assisted reproduction technologies (ARTs) with reference to the diagnosis and management of diseases affecting fertility make the journal an effective platform for the exchange of knowledge among scientists and specialists of the field. As the journal delves into topics from a broad array of academic disciplines, scientists in basic and clinical fields will find a place to represent their research findings and reach their colleagues to share their experience through this journal.
