Abstract: Let $ R$ be a commutative Noetherian ring and $ E$ the minimal injective cogenerator of the category of $ R$-modules. An $ R$-module $ M$ is (Matlis) reflexive if the natural evaluation map $ M\to \mathrm {Hom}_R(\mathrm {Hom}_R(M,E),E)$ is an isomorphism. We prove that if $ S$ is a multiplicatively closed subset of $ R$ and $ M$ is an $ R_S$-module which is reflexive as an $ R$-module, then $ M$ is a reflexive $ R_S$-module. The converse holds when $ S$ is the complement of the union of finitely many nonminimal primes of $ R$, but fails in general.
