    Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN)

    Latest Issue: May 2024

    The Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN) is the leading kidney journal in the world. JASN has been published monthly since July 1990. JASN represents an outstanding synthesis of cutting-edge basic research, clinical epidemiology, clinical research, meta-analysis, relevant editorials, perspectives and timely and important reviews. Editorials are written to distill and elucidate the key findings of the parent article. JASN also encourages submission of Letters to the Editor about recently published articles. Similarly, the reviews are invariably erudite and comprehensive in their coverage of a given field. The overall content and tone of JASN represent scholarship in basic and clinical research of exceptional merit and luster. JASN peer-review and publication processes are handled expeditiously. Authors receive decisions within 21 days after submission and manuscripts are typically published online within four weeks of acceptance. JASN has an acceptance rate of 13% and is circulated to nearly 15,375 individuals and institutions worldwide. JASN deposits published research articles in PubMed Central within 12 months of publication, which satisfies the NIH Public Access Policy and other similar funding agency requirements.
