Scientific Review Committee


The Scientific Review Committee is responsible to develop systematic reviews on predefined topics and to select other editorial formats in key areas where research is still incipient.

Responsible for:

  • Review the current state of knowledge in sexual medicine.
  • Develop algorithms and widely accepted strategies for diagnostic and therapeutic management of the various areas of sexual medicine.
  • Identify, evaluate, and endorse optimal international questionnaires and instruments (symptom scores) which aid in the evaluation of sexual medicine.
  • Standardize response criteria and recommendations for clinical research and clinical studies in sexual medicine.

The deadline to join the ISSM Subcommittee for a New Systematic Review on the safety and efficacy of injection therapies has passed.
