Sexual Medicine Reviews (SMR) solicits evidence-based, primarily systematic, in-depth reviews of the highest caliber on multi-disciplinary clinical or translational topics in Sexual Medicine. These reviews, published quarterly, embrace wide-ranging, comprehensive subjects of male, female and couple sexual function and dysfunction.

The scope of SMR represents the diversity of subjects in basic science and clinical practice that define sexual health, sexual function, sexual dysfunction and sexual medicine. SMR is targeted at the sexual medicine investigator, practitioner, and trainee, but is also explicitly intended to appeal to and serve the needs of a broader audience of generalists and specialists with interest in or need of a high quality overview of a specific topic in sexual medicine.  More

Companion Journal

The Journal of Sexual Medicine publishes high-impact multidisciplinary basic and clinical science monthly. The Journal disseminates critical information to define and understand the scientific basis of male, female, and couple’s sexual function and dysfunction and improve the practice of clinical sexual medicine.

Sexual Medicine, a Gold Open Access publication, lends itself very well to research of interest to lay communities and mental health experts. The Journal is fully compliant with various funder mandates.

About the ISSM

The International Society for Sexual Medicine was established in 1978 for the purpose of promoting research and exchange of knowledge for the clinical entity "impotence" throughout the international scientific community. The principal orientation of ISSM was initially towards basic science of erection, defects in the erectile mechanism, and the clinical aspects of diagnosis and treatment of erectile dysfunction. The orientation is now towards the whole field of human sexuality.
