Aims and scope

Clinical and Experimental Nephrology is a peer-reviewed monthly journal, officially published by the Japanese Society of Nephrology (JSN) to provide an international forum for the discussion of research and issues relating to the study of nephrology. Out of respect for the founders of the JSN, the title of this journal uses the term “nephrology,” a word created and brought into use with the establishment of the JSN (Japanese Journal of Nephrology, Vol. 2, No. 1, 1960). The journal publishes articles on all aspects of nephrology, including basic, experimental, and clinical research, so as to share the latest research findings and ideas not only with members of the JSN, but with all researchers who wish to contribute to a better understanding of recent 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.

Please note that Clinical and Experimental Nephrology will generally NOT accept case reports for any types of Articles such as Original articles or Letters to the editor. We strongly encourage authors to submit case reports to CEN Case Reports. ( https://www.editorialmanager.com/cenc)

We sincerely hope that the journal will provide an ideal scientific forum for the communication and advancement of research in nephrology, and that the information exchanged in these pages will help to solve many open questions in nephrology. Contributions from all parts of the world are welcome.
