Welcome to ISN

 Bibliography of the History of Nephrology

Because papers dealing with the history of nephrology are scattered amongst many journals and difficult to access, Dr. J. Stewart Cameron has prepared an annotated bibliography of works dealing with the history of nephrology, from 1788 to the present day.

This list should be regarded as ‘work in progress’, not only because it will be updated as new papers are published, but also because the participation of ISN members and other interested persons is invited to make this list as complete as possible. If you know of papers, books, videos, websites or any other relevant material dealing with the history of nephrology in any aspect that are not listed in the bibliography, then please communicate this information to Dr. J. Stewart Cameron (address below).

The bibliography can be downloaded in 7 parts and the format is Ms Word 97.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

Part 5

(Papers published up to 1999 not included in the main bibliography parts 1-4)

Part 6

(Again we bring the latest years? papers (2001) to your attention, together with a number of contributions from previous years not cited previously. And finally, a short summary of papers dealing with the subject of needles, intravenous fluids and hypodermic injections.)

Part 7

(The pace of publication has slackened somewhat during the past year or two, as the study of the history of Nephrology becomes established and the main lines of information and thought have been laid out. However much remains to be done, and few archives of original material have been accessed and analysed)
