 We asked current and former ISN-KI Editorial Fellows to share their experiences of the fellowship: 

“I handle manuscripts with associate editors and participate in weekly editorial conferences, allowing me to mature as a physician-scientist. 

This great experience has given me a deeper perspective on cutting-edge kidney research.” Sho Hasegawa (Japan), current ISN-KI Editorial Fellow 2021-2023 

Assessing the quality of a paper, learning from the other editors, networking with colleagues, and understanding the key features of a good paper are just some of the many skills I have developed as an ISNKI Editorial Fellow. This experience will be extremely valuable in my professional life, and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone wanting to pursue an academic career.Letizia De Chiara (Italy), current ISN-KI Editorial Fellow 2021-2023 

My time as ISN-KI Editorial Fellow equipped me with the knowledge and confidence confidence critically review manuscripts and manage each stage of the editorial process, from selecting reviewers to making a final decision. This experience has helped me formulate my own manuscripts and has given me a broader and deeper understanding of current knowledge in nephrology.” Anna Francis (Australia), ISN KI Editorial Fellow from 2019-2021 

“The ISN-KI Editorial Fellowship allowed me to work with individuals on the editorial board with rich scientific and academic vision. The learning opportunities are incredible and have transformed my career path for the better! Sethu Madhavan (USA) ISN KI Editorial Fellow from 2019-2021
