Iranian Journal of Reproductive Medicine Vol.11 No.1, 2 & 3

Iranian Journal of Reproductive Medicine vol.11 was posted on Bioline last month. Here are some interesting highlights from each of the issues:

Vol.11 no.1 includes "An exploratory study to develop a practical ethical framework for reproductive health research" by Farajkhoda et al, which is a study done to evaluate the need for an appropriate ethical framework for reproductive health research. This study was carried out by obtaining qualitative answers first through open-ended questions via email and analyzing the findings. The categories of the framework included:

  • management of the research process
  • protection of participants' rights
  • third party consent
  • gender sensitive research and
  • conflict of interest
This ethical framework can help health care practitioners respect the rights of their clients.
