Reproductive BioMedicine Online (RBMO) and the Association of Reproductive and Clinical Scientists (ARCS) are delighted to announce a new collaborative partnership.

ARCS is a professional body of reproductive scientists, founded in 2020 to support the research and development interests and needs of those involved in reproductive sciences in the UK, and worldwide. The Association’s mission is to promote the highest standards of research, diagnosis, patient care and educational outreach in the fields of fertility and reproductive science.

RBMO is proud to support these goals through the journal’s own mission as an internationally renowned publication of 24 years, dedicated to supporting progressive, high quality research and discussion across the full range of human reproductive health and disease, and the societal implications of fertility care.

RBMO is published in collaboration with Elsevier, and together we are pleased to help ARCS better serve its members, the RBMO community, and the wider profession through this collaboration.

Speaking on the new partnership, ARCS Chair, Professor Jackson Kirkman-Brown said: “ARCS partnership with RBMO provides us the basis for international reach of our guidelines and best practice, as well as valued access for our members to the journal we believe comprehensively covers their interests at the highest standards. Working together we can globally impact and guide future excellence in our field.”

RBMO Co-Chief Editor, Prof. Nick Macklon said ‘ RBMO is a truly international journal and is proud to have affiliations that serve prestigious professional associations world-wide.  We are delighted to announce this new partnership with the ARCS in the UK that will enhance mutual accessibility to the best science and best practice for all.’

Co-Editor Prof. Juan García-Velasco said “Since the early days, RBMO has had a strong focus on embryology and scientists. Our partnership with ARCS will bring RBMO closer to its members and facilitate a close academic engagement with them.”

We look forward to working with our new partners into the future.
