ndt publishes Editorials, Reviews and original research. Fast track original articles (i.e. cutting-edge manuscripts where the Editorial Board aims at providing a reply to authors within 2 weeks) and (only) online E-letters to the Editor commenting on papers previously published in the journal are also considered. The journal covers the whole territory of Nephrology research including Experimental work in animal models and molecular biology studies. In the Clinical Science section we consider Clinical Trials (RCT have a priority in our journal), observational studies at large and original work on Health Economy as applied to Nephrology. We aim at covering the whole spectrum of kidney disease research, from clinical nephrology to hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis and renal transplantation.
