The American Journal of Kidney Diseases Online contains the
full content of each issue of the journal, including all
figures and tables. In addition, the full text is
searchable by keyword, and the cited references include
hyperlinks to Medline and to the online full text of many
other online journals.
Online full-text content begins with the January 1999
issue, and will expand with each month's new issues.
Abstracts are online beginning with 1981 issues. All
full-text content is searchable. Content includes in-depth
reviews, supplements and announcements, as well as
collected papers and future articles.
Each issue will be placed online approximately on the date
it is mailed to subscribers; therefore the online site will
be available prior to receipt of your paper copy. The
November 1999 issue is the latest issue online. The
December issue is scheduled to be online on November 29,
Online readers may want to sign up for the "eTOCs" service,
which will deliver each issue's new table of contents via
email. You can sign up from any table of contents page.
The Web site also provides access to the Atlas of Renal
Pathology, the AJKD Forum (a moderated bulletin board
dedicated to Nephrology), an online CME program, and a
manuscript tracking program, through which authors can
track papers through the peer review process.
The site is free and available to all on the Internet
through March 31, 2000. Thereafter, access will be by
institutional site license, which comes with all
institutional subscriptions, or by personal subscription.
