About


Keeping up to date in Nephrology can be difficult – in fact, it has been shown that half of all evidence is published in non-renal journals.

Subscribers to Nephrology Now will receive email alerts of the most important articles published in the field of Nephrology as selected by our editorial team. The focus will be on articles in clinical Nephrology that have the potential to affect diagnosis, prognosis or treatment.

Be aware that these articles have been selected for their potential impact, but may have methodologic flaws. Users are invited and encouraged to post comments about the articles on our site. As well, many use our list as content for a live journal club in order to further explore the validity and importance of the articles referenced.

While links to articles are provided, you may require a personal subscription or a subscription through your university or hospital in order to access the full text. At Nephrology Now, we work hard to negotiate free full text access for our readers:

Wiley Interscience has agreed to provide our readers with free full text access to selected articles from American Journal of Transplantation, Nephrology, Hemodialysis International, Seminars in Dialysis.

The American Society of Nephrology has agreed to provide our readers with free full text access to selected articles from the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology and Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.
