Gender and Hormones in Lower Urinary Tract Function

The American Journal of Physiology - Renal Physiology is seeking manuscripts to be submitted specifically related to Gender and Hormones in Lower Urinary Tract Function. Males and females exhibit significant differences in overall voiding function due to anatomy and hormonal influences and these differences are thought to contribute significantly at different life stages to lower urinary tract symptoms. Papers may address questions that are relevant to normal renal physiology, pathophysiology, and clinical medicine.

Authors should indicate in their letter to the editor and in the online submission form under “Manuscript Type” that the submitted manuscript is in response to a Special Call for Papers. Accepted manuscripts will be published under a distinct heading and will receive special attention and handling. Only those papers not requiring extensive revision will be published under this call. If you currently have a manuscript on this topic that has already been submitted and would like it to be included in this Special Call, please contact Dr. Darwin Bell, Editor-in-Chief via e-mail at

Submission Deadline: June 30, 2017
