Aims and Scope

Vol. 11 Issue 1 (2024)

Continuous Publication

The Colombian Journal of Nephrology (Revista Colombiana de Nefrología) is a digital scientific publication, of open access, that publishes mainly research articles, reviews and clinical cases of Nephrology in Spanish or English. It has a continuous periodicity, with three issues per year, and a “double blind” evaluation system for the selection of its contents.

As of the particularities of its editorial line and thematic, the Journal seeks to contribute to scientific knowledge, clinical practice and education in nephrology. Its topics are diverse and include research on chronic kidney disease, kidney transplantation, kidney failure, dialysis, and acute kidney injury.

It is also engaged in publishing novel works and possible therapeutic strategies in areas such as nephroprotection, glomerular disease, hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, congenital nephropathies, rare diseases with renal involvement, diabetic nephropathy and quality management in nephrology. 

Likewise, due to the nature of its contents, the Journal is expected to be of interest to researchers in the field of nephrology at the international level, specialists, resident physicians and other medical professionals in training. 

The Journal is funded by the Colombian Association of Nephrology and Arterial Hypertension, under the “diamond” open access model, that is, it has no cost for the authors in any of its phases (neither of submission nor of processing of the articles).
