Official Journal of the International Society of Nephrology

Kidney International (KI) is the official journal of the International Society of Nephrology. Under the editorial leadership of Dr. Pierre Ronco (Paris, France), KI is one of the most cited journals in nephrology and widely regarded as the world's premier journal on the development and consequences of kidney disease.

KI offers features with premier benefits for both readers and authors. Here you will find some of the most highly cited original articles in nephrology, sharply focused reviews, latest imaging techniques, controversial discussions and much more.

KI is devoted to kidney research. It aims to inform the researcher, the clinical investigator, and the practicing nephrologist on all aspects of kidney research. These include:

The latest clinical studies on emerging developments in nephrology

The highest level of original research studies in clinical and basic kidney research

Landmark Communications publish concise but complete reports that present high-quality findings of exceptional interest, novelty, transformative value, and broad significance

Nephrology Digest comments on and puts into perspective several areas of new developments in basic and clinical research in nephrology at large, as reported in the recent literature and at scientific meetings

Research Letters report results of studies similar to original investigations that may involve pilot studies, or research focused on a few critical findings

Editorials that highlight important issues in international nephrology

Nephrology sans Frontieres are occasional short articles that discuss matters of local interest to nephrologists around the world, but which we feel need to be known by nephrologists world-wide

In-depth reviews about major issues in kidney research

Controversies on hot topics or debated issues written by two opposing authorities with a summary by the editors

Nephrology Images which are presentations of interesting images in kidney pathology, radiology chosen for their illustrative nature or simply for their esthetic qualities

Policy Forum that features issues of importance to the international renal community including the politics of funding, of organ transplantation, of adequacy of dialysis, of world-wide affordability of end stage patient care and many other topical issues
