Global Outreach Postings

About Global Outreach PostingsScienceWorld

As part of ISN-GO program activities and in collaboration with the ISN Education Program, the ISN has launched a new tool for nephrologists from emerging countries: Global Outreach Postings. The aim of this initiative is to grant access to nephrologists from emerging countries to publish manuscripts that are in line with ISN’s mission and of interest to readers from around the world, including in emerging countries.

A partnership with the Open Urology & Nephrology Journal

The Open Urology & Nephrology Journal is an Open Access online journal published by Bentham OPEN. The journal publishes research articles, reviews, letters, guest edited single topic issues and images in the fields of urology and nephrology.

GOP articles will now be published on TOUNJ website, under a specific ISN heading and at no cost. The GOP articles will remain free access both on the ISN website and on TOUNJ website.

There will be no publication fees.
