BMC Nephrology first launched in October 2000 as the first open access journal in its field.
Over the past 20 year we have been committed to serving the renal research community by making scientific knowledge widely available through open access and open data initiatives, and ensuring that all publishable research has a home. These goals remain as important to us as they were 20 years ago; they are who we are and where we come from.
With huge thanks to our editors, authors and referees, BMC Nephrology is a well respected and trusted journal where our readers can exchange their ideas and discoveries.
To mark the 20th anniversary we are looking back at the journal’s milestone achievements and highlights.
