Reproduction is a monthly peer-reviewed medical journal covering reproductive biology. Its focus is on cellular and molecular biology of reproduction, including the development of gametes and early embryos in all species; developmental processes such as cell differentiation, morphogenesis and related regulatory mechanisms in normal and disease models, assisted reproductive technologies in model systems and in a clinical environment, and reproductive endocrinology, immunology, and physiology. Emerging topics including cloning, the biology of embryonic stem cells, environmental effects on reproductive potential and health, and epigenetic effects on reproductive and developmental processes are also covered. The editor-in-chief is Kevin D. Sinclair (University of Nottingham).


The journal was established in 1960 as the official journal of the Society for Reproduction and Fertility under the name Journal of Reproduction and Fertility (ISSN 0022-4251). It obtained its current name in 2001 when it was merged with Reviews of Reproduction (ISSN 1359-6004), a journal that was published by the Society for Reproduction and Fertility from 1996-2000.[1]
