Renal Failure primarily concentrates on acute renal injury and its consequence, but also addresses advances in the fields of chronic renal failure, hypertension, and renal transplantation. Bringing together both clinical and experimental aspects of renal failure, this publication presents timely, practical information on pathology and pathophysiology of acute renal failure; nephrotoxicity of drugs and other substances; prevention, treatment, and therapy of renal failure; renal failure in association with transplantation, hypertension, and diabetes mellitus. This journal uses single-blind peer review. Renal Failure is a fully open access journal. This means all articles will, if accepted, be available for anyone to read anywhere, at any time immediately on publication. All submitted papers will continue to be peer reviewed following the current rigorous process

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Renal Failure

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
