Mechanistic studies and those exploring reproductive diversity/uniformity between species are encouraged. Published papers include peer-reviewed original research reports and short 'New Research Horizon' review articles.
MHR is published on behalf of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology . The highest scientific and editorial standard is maintained throughout the journal along with a rapid rate of publication.
