Roger Mieusset, Editor-in-Chief
"Andrology is important enough in human life for knowledge not to be restricted to a small community. Open access makes an article available freely available to anyone soon after it is accepted for publication. Accessibility to knowledge in andrology is not only required for all those involved in their everyday occupational life with male problems, but also for any scientific or medical teams. In this way, open access - and Basic and Clinical Andrology - is an open door in the andrological world."
