Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the recent advances in molecular and cellular biology along with the incorporation of bioinformatics and systems biology, we are now able to gather deeper knowledge on the physiological mechanisms and pathophysiology of the female reproductive system—the ovary, uterus, cervix, and endometrium—at the cellular level (including MSC), and more in-depth at the level of protein, miRNA, and sRNA. This information is vital in maintaining and manipulating the normo-physiological conditions of the ovary and uterus in general, and more specifically in the development and maturation of oocytes, ovulation, hormonal regulation of ovaries, and endometrial functions that have direct impact on fertility/sub fertility management. This knowledge in fundamental science has facilitated exploring novel cellular and molecular therapies for subfertility and fertility regulation and new solutions in the management of pathophysiologic conditions such as PCOS, premature ovarian failure, ovulation disorders, fertilization failure, compromised embryo development, endometrial infertility, pregnancy-associated complications, adenomyosis, endometriosis, and gynecological malignancies.

This Special Issue on “Molecular Regulation in Female Reproduction’ focuses on the collection of manuscripts and review articles on recent advances covering cellular and molecular sciences as well as translational medicine in the field of female reproduction.

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 papers will be 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.
