Call for NephSAP Reviewers

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the American Society of Nephrology, thank you for your support of the association and its activities.

The NephSAP Editorial Board invites you to become more involved in the editorial process for NephSAP and further enhance the rigor of the question review by applying to serve as a NephSAP reviewer.

Currently, all NephSAP questions undergo review by the Editorial Board and our current Review Panel of practicing nephrologists. We are seeking additional active ASN members Board certified in Nephrology (or its equivalent outside the US) who have been in active practice for at least 5 years to join the Panel.

Membership on the Review Panel is for four years. Each volunteer will be asked to review questions from two to three issues of NephSAP per year for accuracy and clinical relevance. A copy of a draft syllabus will be e-mailed to each reviewer. The syllabus is included for your information; you are not required to provide comments on the syllabus unless you are applying for CME credit for manuscript review. The review process is conducted electronically through the ASN website. The time from receipt of the material to submission of your review will be approximately 3 to 4 weeks.

Interested parties should complete the ASN Call for NephSAP Reviewers Form. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, October 15.

For further information about this panel, please contact Gisela Deuter, NephSAP Managing Editor, at 202-416-0673 or

The new Review Panel member's term is from January 2009 through December 2012.

Stanley Goldfarb, MD, FASN, NephSAP Editor-in-Chief
Jeffrey S. Berns, MD, FASN, NephSAP Deputy Editor
