The International Society of Nephrology (ISN) invites applications to be the Editor-in-Chief of Kidney International for a period of five years, starting in January 2018. The deadline for submission is March 1st, 2017.
Kidney International (KI) is the official journal of the International Society of Nephrology. Under the editorial leadership of Dr. Detlef O. Schlöndorff (USA), 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. These include the latest clinical studies on emerging developments in renal medicine and the highest level of original research studies in therapy and epidemiology of acute and chronic kidney failure, as well as their translational aspects and genetic basis. In addition relevant aspects of renal physiology, cell biology, biochemistry, pathology, immunology, morphology and new technological developments are reported with the over-all aim of informing the renal researcher and the practicing nephrologist on all aspects of renal research.
The journal reflects the field through critical reviews and original articles, commentaries, editorial updates on recent developments and news features, recommendations and guidelines resulting from expert consensus meetings, aspects of nephrology from the developing world, policy issues, remarkable images, and problem-focused articles for the diagnosis and treatment of renal patients. Kidney International is published monthly.
The journal is now established on a widely used electronic submission and review platform, powered by our publisher, Elsevier. There are currently several associate editors with specialist expertise who are working with the Editor-in-Chief to ensure the timely and rigorous assessment of manuscripts.The opportunity to appoint associate editors and to develop and further engage the Editorial Board will be open to the new Editor-in-Chief.
