Aims & Scope

As the amount of original clinical research continues to grow, it has become increasingly difficult to keep up to date while still devoting substantial time to patient care. Nature Reviews Nephrology, a peer-reviewed journal for physicians, provides timely authoritative interpretations of key research developments, translating the latest findings into clinical practice.

Content includes editorial and opinion pieces, highlights from the current literature, and commentaries on the application of recent research to practical patient care, comprehensive reviews, and in-depth case studies.

Coverage includes all areas concerned with prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the kidney in the adult and child, including hypertension, infection/inflammation, dialysis/chronic uremia, renal failure, transplantation, applied physiology, epidemiology, pathology, immunology, cancer, and genetics.


Published monthly in print and online, Nature Reviews Nephrology’s unique content offers real, practical value in making diagnosis and treatment decisions.
