|An international review
Editor: Barry M Brenner
Current Opinion in Nephrology and Hypertension was launched in 1991 in response to the ever increasing volume of literature published each year in the subject, and has become an internationally renowned source of critical review material. The journal has achieved this with the guidance of the Editor, Dr Barry Brenner, and with its unique systematic coverage of the world literature.
The developments in each of 12 specific aspects of nephrology and hypertension are covered in depth each year with a series of commissioned review articles; the review topics and authors are selected by acknowledged experts in the field. Dr Brenner and the Editorial Board continually oversee and update the editorial structure and scope of the journal, ensuring that it remains a high quality international publication.
Each review article contains indicators referring the reader to the references that are considered by the author to be of greatest interest, and each issue of this bimonthly journal is supplemented by the Current World Literature, an exhaustive bibliographic database which is tailored specifically to cover the entire field of Nephrology and Hypertension.
In addition to its systematic review of the past year's literature, the journal also includes a Special Commentary in each issue. These papers are commissioned by Dr Brenner and are written to contribute to or pre-empt a debate.
