Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For species conservation, it is very important to understand the reproductive process and mechanisms. Unlike other organs, reproductive organs such as testes, ovaries, and uterus are regulated very accurately periodically after puberty. In mammals, including humans, germ cells undergo meiosis after development and must undergo special cell division to differentiate into mature haploid germ cells, sperm, and eggs. These sperm and eggs are fertilized and implanted in the endometrium to produce healthy offspring. A very complex process is carried out dynamically until birth. However, there are still many unknown aspects in these regards. Therefore, through this Special Issue we wish to cover topics that will allow us to gain a deeper understanding of the series of reproductive processes that are not yet well known and to obtain insights into overcoming unexplained infertility in the future. Therefore, I hope that many scientists interested in these topics will respond positively.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
