The American Journal of Physiology-Renal Physiology is seeking manuscripts to be submitted specifically related to the pathophysiology of acute kidney injury. Papers may focus on pathophysiology or therapeutic interventions. Studies may involve in vivo, in vitro, or a combination of approaches. Studies that involve new animal models of acute kidney injury, address the basis for the transition between acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease, and examine the pathophysiology of human acute kidney injury are also solicited. To be eligible for inclusion in this Call for Papers, manuscripts must be submitted by July 1, 2013.
Note to Authors: All manuscripts should be submitted online via eJournalPress, http://ajprenal.msubmit.net; during the online submission, under the "Keywords, Categories, & Special Section" tab, please choose "Pathophysiology of Acute Kidney Injury" under "categories."
The manuscript will undergo normal peer review. If published, the article will be highlighted together in print with other papers appearing in response to this Call and will carry a banner indicating that the paper was submitted in response to this Call for Papers. Submissions will be reviewed as they are received and will be published online immediately upon acceptance.
If you have any questions or currently have a manuscript in this area that has already been submitted to the American Journal of Physiology-Renal Physiology and would like it to be included in this Special Call, please contact Dr. Thomas Kleyman, Editor-in-Chief (e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org).
