Nephrology, initially born as a small branch of medicine, has, in the last few decades, become an extraordinary large field of medicine. The recent development of renal medicine is mirrored by the numerous nephrological journals published, a natural consequence of the increasing number of basic and clinical research studies performed continuously all over the world. Undoubtedly the progress which has occurred in the different, specific fields of renal medicine has given rise to subspecialities which range from renal physiology and pathology to hemo- and peritoneal dialysis and renal transplantation. Even the diagnostic methodology in nephrology, very useful in the clinical practice, has become a speciality within the speciality. Thus, the problem for clinical nephrologists, as well as for internists, is to remain continuously up-dated in all fields of nephrology. Nephrology textbooks are published continuously and in great number. However, the time required for having authors appointed, chapters completed, manuscript edited, galley proofs corrected and the whole book printed makes many textbooks already out of date when they go on sale and their half lives are very short. On the other hand, nephrological journals are so many and the articles so numerous and detailed, that it is often impossible to rely on them for up-dating practicing clinicians
