Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to invite you to contribute in preparing and submitting manuscripts dedicated to “Molecular Genetics of male reproductive development and infertility” for this special issue of the Journal of Men’s Health.

In this special issue, we would like to focus on the most common and rare molecular genetic factors associated with abnormal development of male sex organ or infertility, as well as the possibility of the use of innovative therapies, especially stem cells, for these patients.

Molecular genetic abnormalities are responsible for about 15 to 30% of infertile cases and it is assumed that most cases of currently unexplained infertility may have various mutations or genetic abnormalities. More importantly, some of these abnormalities or mutations may transmit to the offspring via assisted reproductive techniques (ART) such as In vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and result in the birth of boys with higher risk of infertility and congenital abnormalities. Therefore, identification of these abnormalities in the context of human reproductive development and infertility is worthful for andrologists and clinicians prior to any therapeutic procedures. Moreover, we would like to focus on the importance of stem cells in reproductive development. Since stem cells technology, particularly human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC), has opened new door for treatment of several developmental diseases, recent evidences have revealed the regeneration or production of sex organoids by using of stem cells. Therefore, it appears that these cells can be considered as a valuable and innovative strategy for treatment of infertility, especially for those who suffer from abnormal sex organ development.  

This special issue offers an opportunity to address the following but other topics:

  • Most common and rare genetic syndromes associated with abnormal development of sex organs & infertility
  • Role of molecular genetic factors in assisted reproductive techniques
  • The importance of genes and various mutations in male reproductive development & health
  • Role of epigenetic modifications in male reproductive development and health
  • The importance of stem cells in treatment of male infertility
  • Regenerative medicine and male infertility

Your contribution is welcome in form of original article, case report, commentary and review.

Let’s share our experience to the better care of the patients of all of us.

Kind Regards,

Dr. Eisa Tahmasbpour Marzouni

Manuscript Submission Information

Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed by experts in the field. Rapid peer review and prompt editorial decisions will ensure that quality manuscripts are published on time. The manuscript has not already been published or submitted elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). If similar work has been published or submitted elsewhere, you must provide a copy of the submitted manuscript. You may not submit your manuscript elsewhere while it is under consideration at the Journal of Men's Health. All manuscripts undergo thorough double-blind peer-review. To check the suitability of the special issue for publishing your manuscript, please read the journal's aims and scope and read or download the guide for authors. You may also send a brief abstract of your work (about 100 words) to the Editorial Office at A guide for authors and other relevant information for manuscript submission is available on the Instructions for Authors page.

Academic Writing and English Language Editing Services

Authors who feel that their manuscript may benefit from additional academic writing or language editing support before submission are strongly encouraged to use academic editing services.

Article Processing Charges (APC)

All manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Men's Health are assessed according to the journal standard editorial criteria. If accepted for publication, an Article Processing Charge of 900 USD applies.

The journal typically offers a 30% discount to submissions with good quality invited by the Editor-in-Chief, Guest Editor (GE) and Editorial Board Member.

Lower-income countries ( World Bank classification ) may apply a further discount or waiver (please contact when submit).
