Male reproduction and its intricate neuroimmunoendocrine regulations open a wide scope of scientific interventions. Male infertility, being responsible for about half of the overall global infertility cases, represents a complex pathophysiological mechanism. Crosstalk among the endogenous immune and endocrine mediators may affect male gonadal functions. Since male reproduction is fine-tuned by orchestrated regulation of reproductive hormones and immune regulators, a better understanding of these chemical regulations will potentiate further research in this direction.
This issue aims to summarize the current knowledge on the hormonal and immunological regulations of male reproductive functions in physiological and pathophysiological conditions of male reproduction.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
Energy homeostasis and male reproduction
Immunoendocrine regulation of male reproductive functions
Adipokines and energy metabolism in male fertility
Obesity and male infertility: energy imbalance to inflammation
Endocrine regulation of epigenetics of reproductive tract inflammation
Altered energy metabolism and immune regulation in aged men

Article (Research articles and Review Articles) should be submitted online on the journal site http://www.thesciencein.org/journal/index.php/cbl as per author guidelines. Authors need to indicate submission to special issue in cover letter to editor.
There is no publication charges for publishing in special issue or in Chemical Biology Letters.
Information for Authors for submitting articles to International Biomedical Frontiers Journal
The Authors need to submit a single file containing all the details
as described below. The supplementary data files should be submitted as a
separate file. A cover letter and graphical abstract should be
submitted along with manuscript as details provided below.
Authors should supply a cover letter indicating rational of their
work. Cover letter should also have details of at least three reviewers
(with email). Cover letter should be provided on the first step of
submission in “Comments for Editor’ box.
Manuscript should include Title, Author (s), Affiliation (complete name of institutions), Abstract, 5 Keywords, (other sections like Introduction, Results and discussion, conclusion, experimental procedures in the main body text of manuscript could be used for full paper article), acknowledgment and references in the listed order. Short communications need not to be arranged in different sections.
The journal accept all type of citation styles. Authors may use any of the available numbered style, but are highly encouraged to use ‘Citation Manager’ program (mendeley etc.) for citation of references. The editorial office will format the references in required format.
References should be formatted as shown for articles,1 theses,2 books,3,4 and patents,5
1. R. Ping, M. Laura, P.S. Mario. Title of the journal article should be included here. Int. Lett.Org. Chem. 1996, 61, 4439–4449.
Citation Manager style files: Authors are highly
encouraged to use the citation manager programs for citing and
formatting the references. Authors may use free Mendelay, Zotero, Paper 2
or Endnote program. If you are using any of these citation manager
program for Bibliography (References and Notes), then you can download
citation style file for journal (common for ISP journals):
click to download and then open in respective program (the user can
see the respective program user guide on how to use the style file).
Authors need to submit all manuscripts through journal website.
Register by following link ‘Register’ above (make sure to mark checked
the options Author and reviewer while registering for journal). On
login, you will find ‘new submission’ link in your panel page.
For review purpose, author can submit the manuscript as outlined
above. However, Authors are advised to prepare their manuscript
according to journal article template (provided below) as it progress
towards acceptance. On acceptance of manuscript, authors must need to
supply their manuscript in Article template (if they have not already
submitted in template). If you face difficulty in preparing manuscript
according to template, then you can forward your manuscript (place all
figures with caption in the end of file) to Copyeditor/Support
department ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
On acceptance of manuscript, Authors are required to submit revised
manuscript in journal articles template (If authors wish, they are free
to submit their manuscript in journal article template while submitting
download the template (as per the MS Word version that you have on
your computer), double click the file to open and then prepare your
article and save it with your own name.
Login and submit the manuscript online (submission by email are not accepted). Only online submissions are accepted now.
Authors are advised to contact Support, Biomed Frontiers (email: pubs @ thesciencein.org ) if there is any problem in registration or submission.
Declaration of Conflict of Interest
Authors should mention any conflict of interest in the work submitted to Biomedical Frontiers. The statement about conflict of interest may be mentioned in the ‘Letter to editor’ or placed in the manuscript after acknowledgement section.
Ethical Uses Declaration:
If the manuscript report the experimentation on animals (including
clinical trials on human beings), then declaration about ethical way
handling of animals and about keeping the complete privacy of human
identity (in case of clinical trials) must be mentioned in the
Helsinki Declaration (contents from NIH-NLM): When reporting
experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the
procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the
responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and
national) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2000
(5). If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accordance
with the Helsinki Declaration, the authors must explain the rationale
for their approach, and demonstrate that the institutional review body
explicitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study. When reporting
experiments on animals, authors should be asked to indicate whether the
institutional and national guide for the care and use of laboratory
animals was followed.
