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. The term "nephrology" in the title was created and brought into use with the establishment of 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, providing a means of sharing research findings and ideas for the members of JSN, and for all researchers who wish to contribute to a better understanding of advances in nephrology. Uniquely, the journal introduces to an international readership original reports from Japan and also the clinical standards discussed and agreed by JSN.

Peer review is conducted using Editorial Manager®, supported by a database of international experts. This database is shared with the journal, CEN Case Reports.
