Renal Control of Mineral Homeostasis
The American Journal of Physiology - Renal Physiology is seeking manuscripts to be submitted specifically related to renal control of mineral homeostasis, including calcium, phosphate, and magnesium. Imbalances of these ions result in serious clinical complications, such as arrhythmias, seizures, and respiratory difficulties. Submitted papers should address the critical role that the kidney plays in regulating serum levels of these ions, a process that involves a set of different channels, transporters, and pathways. 

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: December 31, 2017
