About the Journal

Giornale di Clinica Nefrologica e Dialisi (GCND), formerly Giornale di Tecniche Nefrologiche e Dialitiche,  has been a point of reference for the Italian nephrology community for the last 30 years, addressing nephrologists and dialysis experts, dialysis and transplant nurses and dialysis technicians. With its vision of supporting a multi-professional approach to nephrology, GCND has established itself as a point of exchange with important national associations of operators (SIAN) and patients (AIRP, AIAF, ANED) with whom there is a constructive collaboration.

GCND is an indexed, peer-reviewed, open access, online only journal, published once a year. This journal publishes new articles as soon as they are ready for publication (early view, as customary now for scientific journals) and then collecteding them in an issue, to guarantee rapid and efficient publication times and a content distribution to its indexing databases.

GCND publishes editorials, reviews, original articles, short communications and letters, controversies and investigations related to nephrology. All contributions must be original, unpublished, and comply with the manuscript submission guidelines. Specific topics, such as cardionephrology, epidemiology and statistics, clinical management and social media, fundamentals of kidney transplantation, humanization of care, gender nephrology, narrative nephrology (in collaboration with ANED) further identify the multi-professional approach to this large medical field. Additionally, great importance is granted to to nephrology nursing (in collaboration with SIAN) and to specific contributions for polycistic kidney disease (in collaboration with AIRP) and Anderson-Fabry disease ( in collaboration with AIAF).
