Reproduction in Domestic Animals is an international journal publishing original, significant articles on reproduction in domestic animals, laboratory animals, and wildlife, with particular attention to basic, applied and clinical research. Reproduction is considered in a broad context, with its strong disciplinary, comparative core. The journal therefore covers obstetrics, neonatology and udder health, and welcomes contributions in these areas. The scope of the journal applies to veterinarians, breeders, and biologists while also being of interest to practitioners of human medicine.
