Abstract:

This editorial discusses improving the methodological quality of submissions to Fertility and Sterility in psychosocial and behavioral fields.

  • I would be very pleased to get feedback from researchers/clinicians interested in psychosocial and behavioral issues. Before joining the editorial board, I perceived it to be difficult to get articles accepted in Fertility and Sterility. Now I kind of feel like I have become part of that process–yet I really believe the issue is the quality of many of the submissions. I keep seeing terrific articles in Human Reproduction, and would love to attract some of those submissions to our journal I wonder if the SIG’s, for example, sexuality, mental health, and fertility preservation, should consider organizing a symposium at the annual ASRM meeting on methods in behavioral research in reproduction. I also have been able to add a few people to the editorial board with expertise in our issues, but still think we could use a few more.
