About BJN

Basic information

The Brazilian Journal of Nephrology (Jornal Brasileiro de Nefrologia) is an official publication of the Sociedade Brasileira de Nefrologia (Brazilian Society of Nephrology), created for the dissemination of scientific clinical and experimental studies in nephrology.

The BJN is published quarterly (March, June, September and December) and accepts works in Portuguese or English, but the submission of manuscripts by Brazilians in both languages is stimulated.

The papers submitted to the BJN are evaluated by specialists in the field, in the single-blind peer review modality.

In addition to the regular numbers, BJN also publishes annual supplements that include BJN Educational, primarily addressing clinical practice.

The journal's abbreviated title is Braz J Nephrol, which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.
