Sex and Gender in Renal Health and Function
The American Journal of Physiology - Renal Physiology is seeking manuscripts to be submitted relating to studies of sex and gender in renal health and function.  Biological sex is a critical determinant of physiology, and sex differences extend all the way down to the level of the cell.  All aspects related to sex and gender are encouraged for submission.  Submissions can include studies examining the impact of sex and gender on renal physiology in health and disease or renal cellular function.    

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 December 31, 2018
