condition affecting more than 10 percent of all couples worldwide. Dr.
Edwards, who is now professor emeritus at the University of Cambridge,
founded the journal Reproductive BioMedicine Online (
http://www.rbmojournal.com/ ) in 2000 and published it independently for 10
years. Having developed it and ensured its place among the leading journals
in the field of reproductive medicine, he began handing over the reins for
the journal in 2009, becoming Editor Emeritus of RBMOnline. In 2010 Elsevier
became the publisher of this innovative journal.
