A critical look at hot issues in nephrology

Aims and Scope

Nephron comprises two sections, which are each under the editorship of internationally recognized leaders and served by specialized and young Associate Editors. Apart from high-quality original research, Nephron publishes invited reviews/minireviews on up-to-date topics. Papers undergo an innovative and transparent peer review process encompassing a Presentation Report which assesses and summarizes the presentation of the paper in an unbiased and standardized way.
New sections of the Journal are Second Opinion and Case Studies of Genetic Interest. Second Opinion provides a platform for international experts and opinion leaders to cast a critical eye over published papers dealing with hot topics in clinical and experimental nephrology. The objective of Case Studies of Genetic Interest is to provide clinically relevant examples of the genetic heterogeneity of renal diseases.
The open access journal Nephron Extra provides additional contents based on reviewed and accepted submissions to the main journal Nephron on www.karger.com/nne.
