DescriptionThe "Nephrology (Saint-Petersburg)" journal began in 1996, with the first issue being published in 1997. Up until 2013, the journal had been published quarterly. In 2013 the number of issues rose up to 6 per year, which the Editorial Board decided at the request of the Society of Pediatric Medicine and the nephrology professionals from the Southern Federal District of Russia. Henceforth, Issue 3 will address pediatrics, while Issue 5 will be a forum for the nephrologists from the South of Russia.
It will be the Editorial Board policy to provide the opportunity to publish to healthcare professionals form across wider Russia. Since its early days the journal has printed papers by renowned nephrologists from Russia and from across the world.
These publications give an extensive outlook on the development of nephrology, as well as provide a broad coverage of the main avenues of research in nephrology. The journal saw publications by B.M.Brenner, S.Massri, A.Cohen , J.Shanar, E.Ritz, and others. Seven papers from international authors were published in 2012-2013. The journal also brings together the opinion leaders in nephrology from Russia. The team of Y.V. Natochin, the Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, has widely contributed to the journal. In 2012 (Volume 16, Issue 1) Y.V. Natochin came up with the paper called Nephrology and Fundamental Science, which revisited the role nephrology in modern-day medicine.
Experimental research papers by Russian and Ukrainian nephrologists are regularly put in print, the journal being the only medium to accept submissions of this kind.
Applied nephrology is very much in focus of the journal. Leading nephrologists from Russia provide their updates on a wide range of matters.
The journal was the first to publish the draft of the CKD Diagnosis and Treatment National Guidelines in Russia. The draft was initially produced by the Nephrology Research Institute accountable to the Pavlov First Saint Petersburg State Medical University, and has later become the cornerstone of the CKD Diagnosis and Treatment National Guidelines adopted by the Russian Conference on Nephrology. A translated version of KDIGO (Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes) recommendations followed. The Nephrology journal cooperates with the authors of allied medical professions. The column called A Journal Inside the Journal publishes relevant papers by urologists, cardiologists and pulmonologists with an emphasis on diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease. There is also a section for practitioners called Q&A.
