Pediatric Nephrology Journal Updates

We are happy to announce that we have launched a new Journal article type – Systematic Review/Meta-Analysis.

A Systematic Review/Meta-Analysis identifies and synthesizes all published research on a particular topic. We require each Systematic Review/Meta-analysis to be registered through PROSPERO. PRISMA guidelines should be followed when writing, and a completed PRISMA checklist should be included in the submission.

Each manuscript should include an abstract, which should follow PRISMA guidance and include the following sections as applicable: Background, Objectives, Data sources, Study eligibility criteria, Participants and interventions, Study appraisal and synthesis methods, Results, Limitations, Conclusions and implications of key findings, and Systematic review registration number. There is no abstract word limit.
