Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation: an international basic science and clinical renal journal (NDT) is the leading nephrology journal in Europe and renowned worldwide, devoted to original clinical and laboratory research in nephrology, dialysis and transplantation. NDT is an official journal of the ERA. Published monthly, the journal provides an essential resource for researchers and clinicians throughout the world. The journal covers the whole territory of nephrology research including experimental work in animal models and molecular biology studies. In the clinical science section, we consider clinical trials (RCTs have a priority in our journal), observational studies at large and original work on health economy as applied to nephrology. We aim at covering the whole spectrum of kidney disease research, from clinical nephrology to hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis and renal transplantation. All research articles in this journal have undergone peer review.

NDT publishes the following manuscript types:

  • Editorials (on invitation only)
  • Reviews (on invitation only)
  • NDT Digest (on invitation only)
  • Special Reports (working group papers, position statements, guideline papers (on invitation only)
  • Original Articles (Basic Research, Clinical Research, Dialysis, Transplantation, Fast Track)
  • Research Letters
  • E-letters (online only, commenting on a previous publication)

NDT also occasionally publishes sponsored Supplements and papers coming from other ERA initiatives (ERBP, Working Groups). NDT regularly publishes videos and graphical abstracts for selected articles and all figures are redesigned by a professional medical illustrator.
