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 is peer-reviewed and publishes original research in both basic science and clinical medicine covering renal physiology, biochemistry, pathology, immunology, morphology and more. It aims to inform the renal researcher and the practicing nephrologist on all aspects of renal studies, including basic and clinical research, emerging therapeutics, and novel diagnosis.

In 2010, ISN celebrated its 50th Anniversary, showcasing 50 years of achievements. Through the decades, ISN’s goal has evolved from a simple informative Society to an organization that sets out to communicate renal-care knowledge and resources worldwide.
The ISN works to alleviate the growing socio-economic burden of kidney disease through a portfolio of global initiatives to enhance nephrology through education and research. Some of these global initiatives are organized and managed through the ISN Programs, which identify the educational and clinical needs in emerging countries and offer valuable training and educational activities for kidney specialists of all levels.
