Original Research

There are over a dozen categories of Original Research covered by CJASN. For complete descriptions of each, consult the Original Research and Invited Materials descriptions.

Invited Material

The goal of CJASN Invited Materials are to put findings reported in an original research article published in CJASN in context of our current knowledge and/or clinical practice and how the findings from the research paper moves the field forward to inform future research and/or influence clinical practice.
