About the Journal


Our mission is to facilitate timely and broad dissemination of kidney science by offering rigorous and expeditious peer review and rapid open access publication. Kidney360 is a global, peer-reviewed, open access, online only, general kidney journal that publishes scientifically rigorous basic, translational, clinical, epidemiologic, health policy, population science, and global health kidney research.


Kidney360 is a general interest kidney journal that includes content from all disciplines of kidney science. Kidney360 will consider a broad array of original investigations, meta-analyses, and reviews in domains including basic, translational, clinical, epidemiologic, health policy, population science, and global health research. Kidney360 will consider original investigation that contributes in a meaningful way to kidney science. Kidney360 recognizes that establishment of reproducibility across populations defined by different stages of disease or other characteristics, and presentation of robustly designed and adequately powered clinical trials with negative results can be important contributions; Kidney360 will therefore welcome submissions of manuscripts that contribute to reproducibility and manuscripts describing negative results. Kidney360 will also consider rigorous qualitative research, and research in the areas of quality improvement, patient safety, health systems performance, and health care value.
