Giornale Italiano di Nefrologia (ISSN: 1724-5990) accepts contributions in English and Italian. They need to be original, unpublished works and should follow our instructions for authors (see the end of this page). All authors are required to declare any conflicts of interest and to sign a declaration certifying that:

  1. Their scientific work is original and has never been published before, in any language, nor has it been sent for publication to any other national or international newspaper.
  2. The data collected and presented are original and reliable.
  3. The content of the manuscript is in no way obscene or defamatory; it does not violate privacy rights or property protection rights (including copyrights, patents or registered trademarks) or violate any other human or personal rights.
  4. The authors have not violated any right of confidentiality to which they are bound, nor have they violated any contract.

Being a publication of the Italian Society of Nephrology, the Journal also adopts the Society’s Ethical Code of Conduct.

Before being submitted to external double-blind peer review, each article is checked using the antiplagiarism software Compilatio. If accepted, the text is carefully proofread and then formatted according to the Journal’s style.

Contributions are published exclusively in digital format and can be read online (but please note that the access is restricted to members of the Italian Society of Nephrology) or downloaded by anybody in PDF format. The Archive section of this website hosts all issues published since 2013, as well as the links to access previous volumes of the Journal.

All articles are indexed on PubMed shortly after publication. Here, English-language articles are available in full-text through the Linkout service. Everything we publish is also sent to Portico for long-term digital preservation.
