Mechanism and Treatment of Renal Fibrosis

The American Journal of Physiology - Renal Physiology is seeking manuscripts to be submitted specifically related to the pathophysiology of renal fibrosis and new thinking to treat renal fibrosis. Although there are some common features between fibrosis in the kidney and other organs, the study focusing kidney specific consequences is strongly encouraged to submit.

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

Deadline for Submission: Dec 31, 2018
