Clinical and Experimental Nephrology is a peer-reviewed bimonthly journal, officially published by the Japanese Society of Nephrology (JSN) to create an international forum for the discussion of research and issues relating to the study of nephrology. Out of respect to the founders of JSN, the title of this journal uses the term, ”nephrology”, a word created and brought into use with the establishment of JSN (Japanese Journal of Nephrology, Vol. 2, No.1, 1960). In this journal, we publish articles on all aspects of nephrology, including basic, experimental, and clinical research, to provide a means of sharing research findings and ideas not only for the members of JSN, but for all researchers who wish to contribute to a better understanding of advances in nephrology. The journal is unique in that it introduces to an international readership original reports from Japan and also the clinical standards discussed and agreed by JSN.
Nephrology is published eight times per year by the Asian Pacific Society of Nephrology. It has a special emphasis on the needs of Clinical Nephrologists and those in developing countries. The journal publishes reviews and papers of international interest describing original research concerned with clinical and experimental aspects of nephrology.
The Journal of Nephrology (J Nephrol) considers the publication of peer reviewed original manuscripts dealing with both clinical and laboratory investigations of relevance to the broad fields of Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation.
Nature Reviews' clinical content is written by internationally renowned clinical academics and researchers and targeted towards readers in the medical sciences, from postgraduate level upwards. While intended to be read by practicing doctors, researchers and academics within a specialty, we aim to make all our articles accessible to readers working in any medical discipline.
In-depth Reviews present authoritative, up-to-date information on a topic, placing it in the context of a field"s history and development. Topical discussion and opinions are proffered in Perspectives and News & Views articles, and in the Research Highlights section we filter primary research from a range of specialty and general medical journals.
Formerly a journal in its own right called 'Experimental Nephrology', Nephron Experimental Nephrology specialises in the publication of high-quality, original research and reviews in the area of experimental renal cell biology, in vivo models of acute and chronic renal disease including transplantation, renal development, functional genomics and genetics. Nephron Experimental Nephrology is thus of relevance to both adult and paediatric nephrologists, as well as those interested in the scientific basis of the affiliated fields of histopathology, genetics, urology, transplantation and fetal medicine. Scientists working in the fields of developmental molecular biology and immunology will also find Nephron Experimental Nephrology of interest.
The purpose of Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease is to provide in-depth, scholarly review articles about the care and management of persons with early kidney disease and kidney failure, as well as those at risk for kidney disease. Emphasis is on articles related to the early identification of kidney disease; prevention or delay in progression of kidney disease; the multidisciplinary case management of patients with chronic kidney disease or kidney failure, organ effects of kidney disease; epidemiology and outcomes research in chronic kidney disease; benefits and complications of the primary treatment methods, dialysis and transplantation; technical aspects of the delivery of uremia therapy; care of the critically ill patient with kidney failure in the intensive care setting; new therapies for kidney failure; and health care research in chronic kidney disease. The full spectrum of basic science through clinical care is covered in these reviews. Clinical care issues stress the multidisciplinary team approach to the care of kidney patients. Topics covered will be of interest to practicing nephrologists (pediatric and adult), nephrology fellows (pediatric and adult), nurses, technicians, dietitians, and social workers caring for patients with kidney disease. Each bimonthly issue of Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease presents focused review articles devoted to a single topic of current importance in clinical nephrology and related fields.
Seminars in Nephrology is a timely source for the publication of new concepts and research findings relevant to the clinical practice of nephrology. Each issue is an organized compendium of practical information that serves as a lasting reference for nephrologists, internists and physicians in training.
Kidney International (KI) offers features with premier benefits for both readers and authors. Here you will find some of the most cited original articles in nephrology, sharply focused reviews, latest imaging techniques, controversial discussions and much more.
Kidney International devotes itself to renal research. It aims to inform the renal researcher and the practicing nephrologist on all aspects of renal research.
The Journal of Hepato-Biliary- Pancreatic Surgery is the official journal of the Japanese Society of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery and the Asian-Pacific Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association. The Journal of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery publishes original English-language articles dealing with clinical investigations and basic research on all aspects of hepatic, biliary, and pancreatic surgery.
Scandinavian Journal of Urology and Nephrology aims to reflect current clinical research of international scientific standard within all areas of urology and nephrology, including prostate diseases, incontinence, nocturnal enuresis, kidney diseases.
