The Journal of Nephrology Social Work (JNSW) is dedicated to disseminating empirical and ethnographic research on biopsychosocial aspects of chronic kidney disease, dialysis, and kidney transplantation. In addition, it provides the nephrology social work community with a scholarly resource that can be used to inform clinical practice, advance policy and advocacy efforts, and enhance patient care. JNSW publishes primarily original research articles, brief reports, and commentaries, all of which are peer reviewed by experts on the Editorial Board. Although JNSW's focus is on renal disease, its content is relevant to a wide range of social workers and other allied health care professionals.
