ESHRE's review journal Human Reproduction Update, for many years the leading title in the citation categories of Reproductive Biology and O&G, has seen its impact factor rise from 10.165 to 11.194 in the latest journal analysis released in June. This is the highest recorded impact factor ever in these two categories.
Both of ESHRE’s other two titles also increased their impact factor from last year. Molecular Human Reproduction rose from 3.747 to 3.943, and ESHRE's flagship title Human Reproduction confirmed its high-ranking status with a rise from 4.569 to 4.621.

ESHRE has expressed its full support to the Polish Gynecological Society and Polish Society for Reproductive Medicine and Embryology in their opposition to legislative changes proposed in the treatment of infertility. As proposed, the changes would in effect reverse legislation introduced by the former coalition government and apply restrictions likely to limit access to fertility treatments and limit the practice of ART. Among the proposed changes are a limit of one on the number of occytes for fertilisation and a ban on embryo freezing.
Prof. Hans Evers, Editor-in-Chief of Human Reproduction casts an eye on the June 2016 issue and choses his own highlight.
This month's highlight is based on the paper of Joyce C. Harper et al.: The end of donor anonymity: how genetic testing is likely to drive anonymous gamete donation out of business

Editor attacks the over-use of ICSI as ‘ineffective and costly care’
The editor-in-chief of one of the world’s leading reproductive medicine journals has attacked the rising use of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) for the treatment of infertility, following publication of the latest world report on assisted reproductive technologies (ART)
A new technique allowing embryos to develop in vitro beyond the implantation stage has been reported simultaneously by two research groups - from Cambridge, UK, and Harvard, USA. The technique, which for the first time will allow analysis of key stages of human embryo development up to the agreed 14-day post-fertilisation limit, demonstrates the remarkable self-organising capacity of human blastocysts, which so far has been quite unseen and unknown. However, this same reorganisation of the embryo, which normally takes place during the early post-implantation phase, has now been achieved in the laboratory and thus presents a unique opportunity to better understand human development during these early crucial stages.
We have developed a printable pocket guideline containing all the recommendations of the Revised guidelines for good practice in IVF laboratories.

The guideline was also published on the ESHRE pages of Human Reproduction. You can read the guideline and find all available details on this page.

Which techniques used in the study of single cell analysis are most effective?
This Special Series assesses current state-of-the-art techniques used in the field, the information that can be obtained by this mode of study and the limitations that it presents.
The 32nd Annual Meeting of ESHRE will be held in Helsinki, Finland, from 3 to 6 July 2016.
