    Aims and Scope


    Clinical and Experimental Nephrology is a peer-reviewed bimonthly journal, officially published by the Japanese Society of Nephrology (JSN) to create an international forum for the discussion of research and issues relating to the study of nephrology. Out of respect to the founders of JSN, the title of this journal uses the term, ”nephrology”, a word created and brought into use with the establishment of JSN (Japanese Journal of Nephrology, Vol. 2, No.1, 1960). In this journal, we publish articles on all aspects of nephrology, including basic, experimental, and clinical research, to provide a means of sharing research findings and ideas not only for the members of JSN, but for all researchers who wish to contribute to a better understanding of advances in nephrology. The journal is unique in that it introduces to an international readership original reports from Japan and also the clinical standards discussed and agreed by JSN.
    We sincerely hope that the journal will provide an ideal scientific forum for communication and development of research in nephrology and that the information exchanged in these pages will lead to the solution of many un-answered questions in nephrology. Contributions are welcomed from all parts of the world.
