The Asian Journal of Andrology is the official Journal of the Asian Society of Andrology. The journal has its headquarters in Shanghai, China and is sponsored by the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. AJA was launched in 1999 and is published bimonthly by Nature Publishing Group in the English language. With a 12-year history, AJA continues to grow and has become one of the main internationally recognized peer-review journals in the field of andrology. The 2010 Impact Factor of 1.549 ranks AJA third out of five international andrological journals. Our partnership with Nature Publishing Group means the journal has high visibility and an increasing global readership via the nature.com platform – more details are available in this email and at the journal website – http://www.nature.com/aja – or our alternative homepage – http://www.asiaandro.com/. Since July 2011, we now also offer an Open Access option for interested authors.
The journal has an international authorship and readership and we are focussed on developing the best editorial services for authors and providing the best content for readers.
Since the journal first launched in 1999, the editorial team has been dedicated to building an academic platform for the exchange of scientific information in order to promote communication and cooperation among scientists and doctors from all over the world. In recent years, we have witnessed a rapid development of the field of andrology in Asia, which has now become one of the key medical research hubs in the world. By publishing your contribution in the Asian Journal of Andrology, your article will be widely distributed – and read – and will reach many potential collaborators.
The editorial team is led by Prof. Yi-Fei Wang, Editor-in-Chief, and includes a highly respected international editorial board. Together, the editorial team of the Asian Journal of Andrology and NPG look to further define and shape the field of andrology and related sciences.
