world journal of nephrology

Antonio Maria Torrisi, Antonio Granata
Scientific journals are an important communication tool through which authors, publishers, editors, readers, librarians support the circulation of information. How do I select the journal to submit for publication? How can my research have the widest circulation? How can I make my article and my scientific activities to be positively considered by assessment boards? These are some of the main questions that arise when an author chooses to write an article. The research evaluation can be based on qualitative indicators such as the peer review and/or quantities of a not bibliometric or bibliometric type, such as the Impact Factor or SCImago Journal Rank indicator...

INTRODUCTION: In many countries on different continents, at least 10-12% of people are suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD). These data indicate that CKD is a big problem, much more than previously expected. Therefore, programs should be promoted for early detection of kidney diseases and carry out public education and also the medical community. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The aim of this article was the assessment of the nephrology knowledge of participants of the World Kidney Day in Gdansk in 2012...

Even in as small a country as R. Macedonia with limited resources allocated for science, there are many journals trying to establish good editorial practices and policies in publishing the scientific work achieved. Among the currently existing medical journals Macedonian Medical Review (MMR), ISSN 0025-1097, deserves to be elaborated as the oldest journal with continuous publication since its first appearance as the journal of the Macedonian Medical Association (MMA). Since its first issue, published in 1946, there has been an opus of some 4500 peer-reviewed published papers in more than 210 issues and some 80 supplements from various congresses and meetings...

UNLABELLED: The Balkan Cities Association of Nephrology, Dialysis, Transplantation and Artificial Organs (BANTAO) was born in Ohrid on October 9, 1993. The war in former Yugoslavia negatively affected the development of nephrology and also the connections among the nephrologists from the Balkans. However, there was willingness for further mutual collaboration between the nephrologists from the Balkans. The war in Yugoslavia created hate among people, between the newly established countries, and there were problems with the recognition of the names of the new countries, and so, the nephrologists decided to apply the ancient principle of using the names of the cities, instead of the countries, as the founders of the Association...

INTRODUCTION: We described the previously unrecognized syndrome of rapid-onset end-stage renal disease (SORO-ESRD) in 2010, in the journal Renal Failure, as distinct from the classic CKD-ESRD progression of a methodical, linear, time-dependent and predictable progression from CKD through CKD stages I-V, ending in ESRD requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT). It remains unclear to what extent this syndrome may have been identified in the past without acknowledging its uniqueness. METHODS: We reviewed AKI reports and ascertained cases of SORO-ESRD as defined by patients with a priori stable kidney function who subsequently exhibited unanticipated and irreversible ESRD requiring RRT following new AKI episodes...

After the Second World War, clinical nephrology in Francophone countries had 4 leaders: in Paris, P. Vallery Radot with his assistants P. Milliez and J. Hamburger and their own groups; and also in Paris, M. Dérot with J. J. Bernier and M. Legrain; in Bruxelles, P. Govaerts with P. P. Lambert; and in Genève, R. Mach. To these one must add J. Traeger of Lyon and J. M. Suc of Toulouse who later joined the group. It all started in 1947-1948 around the Societé de Pathologie Rénale. In the current paper, the author describes the main 4 fields of development: water and electrolyte balance, acute anuria and dialysis, renal biopsy and classification of nephritides and finally transplantation under the direction of J...

Gabriele Monasterio (1903-1972), a clinician with numerous medical interests, contributed remarkably to the development of the Italian nephrology of his time. His main scientific contributions were: - Investigation of the causes of normoglycaemic glycosuria. Of this condition he collected, from 1939 on, a large series of patients whom he also investigated - for the first time in the world - with renal biopsy and - thanks to a collaboration with Jean Oliver - the microdissection of the nephron. - Introduction, in the early 1960s, of a low protein diet for the patients with chronic renal failure...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have documented Japan's share of articles in different biomedical fields. However, Japan's contribution to urology and nephrology is not known. METHODS: Seven journals in this field with the highest impact factors were selected to obtain relevant data. In June 2002, we searched the Medline database to obtain country affiliation details of articles published in the selected journals during 1991-2000. The proportion of articles with a higher grade of evidence (randomized controlled trials or clinical trials, cohort studies and case-control studies) were also generated and compared to the average values for all articles published in these journals...

The establishment of the Turkish Society of Nephrology (TSN) in 1970 coincided with that of many western European nephrology societies. The TSN organized the 15th ERA-EDTA Congress in Istanbul in 1978, earlier than many European Countries, and currently has 286 active members. At present, Turkey has 161 nephrologists, which equals 2.5 nephrologists per million population (p.m.p.). The number of original articles submitted by Turkish authors to the journal Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation ranks 7th-8th amongst total submissions to the journal...

Pediatric nephrology, as a discipline, arose from descriptive studies of childhood glomerulonephritis in Europe and the field of pediatric metabolism in the United States. While pediatric scientists before 1950 were concerned with fluid and electrolyte metabolism, regulation of intracellular and extracellular fluid, acid-base homeostasis, and parenteral fluid therapy, the defined field of nephrology developed after the Second World War around six major advances: ACTH and glucocorticoid therapy for nephrotic syndrome; renal biopsy to diagnose glomerular disease; the role of immunologic factors in glomerular injury; the use of dialysis as renal replacement therapy; renal transplantation as the optimal form of therapy in children with end stage renal failure; and recognition of renal disease in the etiology of 80% of cases of childhood hypertension...
