Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation (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-EDTA (European Renal Association-European Dialysis and Transplant Association). Published monthly, the journal provides an essential resource for researchers and clinicians throughout the world. All research articles in this journal have undergone peer review.

ndt publishes Editorials, Reviews and original research. Fast track original articles (i.e. cutting-edge manuscripts where the Editorial Board aims at providing a reply to authors within 2 weeks) and (only) online E-letters to the Editor commenting on papers previously published in the journal are also considered. 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 (RCT 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.
