Our team made this list of Kidney disease Open Access journals with the aim to help you to decide where to publish your Kidney disease manuscript.
Our list includes all the high-impact factor Kidney disease journals as well as new journals. This should give you a better idea on where you should publish. Rather than displaying just the most relevant Kidney disease journals, we have made an in-depth list of all the open accesss Kidney disease journals.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access is the free online access of research articles coupled with the rights to use and distribute these articles fully in the digital environment.
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
Relevance is used to quantify the level of association between a journal and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, “Brain Stimulation” has a relevance of “24” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it is somewhat related to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often works from this journal are referenced in other research papers. This data is obtained from OpenAlex. Even though the accuracy is debatable, it could help you determine how prestigious a journal is on the whole.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists under different topics, look on OA.mg
How can I publish my paper on OA.mg?
We do not offer publishing services. If you'd like to get your paper published, I would suggest you find a journal that suits your needs.
What is an APC?
In some cases, articles published in journals are made open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made usually made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services provided.
What are the different Open Access types?
Depending on the license, a research paper might be categorised as a) Gold Open Access, which means the paper is freely available and fully accessible to everyone, b) Hybrid Open Access, which means that the authors can pay an APC to make the paper freely available, or c) Green Open Access, which means that there is a possiblity to make subcription based journal articles freely avaiable by uploading the peer-reviewed article to an instiutional repository. Among these, Diamond, Black, and Bronze Open Access also exist.
