RSAJ - online from 2019

From 2019, in an effort to best serve the needs of our members, authors, editorial board and subscribers, and taking into account environmental concerns, the Renal Society of Australasia Journal will be moving to an online platform.  As well as considerably reducing the carbon footprint of printing and mailing, this transition is consistent with the trend in 21st century academic and clinical scholarship where the great majority of usage is already online.

As well as managing costs of production and Australia Post costs which have increased markedly in the recent years, moving the journal online will benefit from greater international exposure due to the online platform linking into Google Scholar, EbscoHost, InfoRMIT and other search engines/indexing services more easily.
