About the book

The current infertility treatment through assisted reproductive technologies can achieve more than 80% of accumulated live birth rates. High live birth rates rely on the advanced technologies in infertility treatment. Especially in recent few years, the progresses have been made in accurate patient diagnosis, state-of art embryology laboratory procedures and management of patients during the infertility treatment. In this book, we will focus on some most advanced infertility treatment approaches used in human assisted reproductive technologies including assay of endometrial receptivity, fertility cryopreservation, artificial intelligence, and preimplantation genetic testing including the new technology for non-invasive embryo biopsy technology.

We will request authors in these fields to write the detailed protocols for related subjects, author’s own experiences and literature reviewing. All of these topics are the hot research fields in infertility treatment and assisted reproduction, some of them are matured technologies and are applied in the clinics, such as oocyte cryopreservation for fertility preservation, while others are still on the stage for development, such as non-invasive embryo biopsy for preimplantation genetic testing and artificial intelligence in assisted reproductive technologies.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
