General Information

Reproduction, Fertility and Development welcomes the submission of papers presenting original and significant research (see Scope). All papers are refereed, in consultation with our Editorial Board.

Research articles should report research that addresses a fundamental question in reproductive biology. Descriptive and methodological studies will be assessed according to this criterion. In general, articles dealing with clinical or veterinary practice or the routine application of reproductive technologies are not considered. Reproduction, Fertility and Development has no page charges, and offers free colour online.

When preparing a paper for publication, please follow the journal style as closely as possible. It may help if you consult a recent copy of the journal or a sample issue online. Detailed guidelines are set out in the Author Instructions.


Reprints can be ordered prior to publication. An order form is sent to the corresponding author with final page proofs.

CSIRO Publishing supplies the corresponding authors with a free PDF of their paper upon publication. Authors may also order hardcopy reprints of their papers at the time they complete author corrections. Authors may create links to their papers from their personal webpages. All papers are also available from our website either by subscription or sale of individual papers.


The journal is indexed/abstracted in a wide variety of databases.


To submit your paper, please use our online journal management system ScholarOne Manuscripts.
