In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproductive technique in which eggs from a woman's ovary are removed. They are fertilized with sperm in a laboratory procedure and then the fertilized egg is returned to the woman’s uterus. The journal is the best open access journal updated with recent information regarding IVF that includes its indications, methods, success rates, risk and complications, also additional techniques and ethics associated to IVF. Reproductive medicine covers all aspects pertaining to prevention and diagnosis of reproductive issues which include several topics like infertility, menopause, pregnancy, conception, menstruation, ovulation etc. Reproductive genetics focuses on genetic tests to determine possible risks in biological children. Stem cell research in model organisms relevant to germ line and embryo development comes under stem cell biology.
This Fertility Journal is an official peer-reviewed journal for the rapid publication of high impact research and clinical studies in all fields justifying its title in Open Access mode to meet the needs of authors and maximize article visibility. The journal includes a wide range of fields in its discipline to create a platform for the authors to make their contribution towards the journal and the editorial office which is an open access publisher promises a peer review process for the submitted manuscripts for the quality of publishing.
The journal is a scholarly open access journal and aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all relevent areas and making them freely available through online without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide.
The journal is using Editorial Manager System for quality in review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking system. Review process is monitored by the editorial board members of Journal of Fertilization: In Vitro, IVF Worldwide, Reproductive Medicine, Genetics & Stem Cell Biology or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.
Realizing the potential of Open Access in terms of greater visibility within and beyond the scientific community, in recent years, there has been a tremendous boost to Open Access movement through various Open Access publishers. OMICS International is one such publishing group that believes in this movement and is most ardently working towards the welfare and progress of scientific community. It is built upon the principles of Open Access and is determined to provide free and unrestricted access of research articles to scientists around the world for the advancement of science and technology.
Unlike artificial insemination wherein the sperm is introduced into uterus, in IVF, the sperm and egg are fertilized outside the uterus in laboratory conditions. The fertilized egg is then introduced into woman’s uterus. Most often, IVF is not the first treatment suggested for infertility because of its complex nature and costs involved in it.

Recent advances and latest techniques in IVF treatment are enabling to achieve high success rates and minimizing the chances of multiple pregnancies and birth defects. The refinements are being done in every step of IVF i.e., ovarian stimulation, collection of sperm, fertilization, embryo development in lab conditions and introduction of embryo into uterus.

Infertility is when not being able to achieve pregnancy even after regular intercourse. It is the most common problem which suffers the couples from having children. Many treatments have been available with different success rates. They include fertility drugs, intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), donor insemination (DI), egg (or embryo) donation and surrogacy.

Assisted reproduction is a technology for treating infertility problem. The commonly employed methods for infertility treatment like fertility drugs, surrogacy, artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization comes under assisted reproductive techniques (ART). The popular destination countries for ART are USA, UK, Sweden, Canada, Israel, New Zealand, Germany and Jordan.

Artificial Insemination (AI) is one of the infertility treatments available for both men and women. In this technique, the sperm is directly introduced into woman’s uterus, fallopian tube or cervix. The most common form of artificial insemination is intra Uterine Insemination (IUI). Although the success rate of this technique is less, it is the first infertility treatment doctor would suggest as it involves less cost and the treatment method is simple.

Reproductive Medicine is a branch of medicine deals with the diagnosis, management and treatment of many reproductive issue that include sexual education, infertility, family planning, and in women, ovulation, menstruation, pregnancy, menopause and gynecological disorders. Methods include different imaging, laboratory and surgical techniques.

Reproductive genetics is a sub-filed of medical genetics that primarily involve conducting different tests for predicting possible outcomes of future pregnancies. The tests involve analyzing genetic material like chromosomes, genes, DNA, RNA and gene products for accessing genetic changes that have likelihood of causing some disease after pregnancy in either mother or child.

Reproductive Health refers to the condition of well-being physically, mentally and socially in all aspects relevant to reproductive processes. It defines the state where people enjoying safe sexual life, they are informed about effective and affordable family planning procedures, women are enjoying safe pregnancy and child birth, people are able to access all sort of reproductive health services etc.

Semen analysis is the most common way of accessing infertility in men. It basically evaluates the quality and environment of sperm. The analysis involves testing various sperm parameters such as sperm morphology, sperm count, sperm motility etc. It helps to test sperm donors for quality sperm to be used in assisted reproductive techniques.

Endometriosis is disease condition in woman in which the tissue which normally grows inside the uterus will grow outside the uterus. The side effects of the condition are pelvic pain and infertility. In 70% of the cases, the pelvic pain would be severe during menstruation. The cause for such condition is not clearly understood yet.

It refers to accessing the genetic profile of embryo before implantation and sometimes oocyte before fertilization. It is similar to pre-natal diagnosis. It avoids babies from having genetic diseases as it suggests hints to doctors prior to birth. Hence, PGD is used as an adjunct in all assisted reproductive techniques. For example, during IVF treatment, the oocyte and embryo are evaluated using PGD prior to use.

It is also referred as primary ovarian insufficiency. It is a condition in which ovaries are not able to function normally before menopausal age i.e., 40 years, resulting in not able to produce estrogen hormone and release egg. The common symptom is infertility. Women with POF may have occasional periods and may get pregnant.

*Unofficial 2015 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2013 and 2014 with the number of times they are cited in 2015 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2013 and 2014, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2015 then, impact factor = Y/X
