Changing journal’s title from IJNU to NUmonthly

Dear Readers,

As the editor-in-chief of the journal, I would like to inform you that after the last editorial board meeting in January 2011, we decided to change the official titleof the journal from “International Journal of Nephrology and Urology” to “Nephro-Urology Monthly” due to some doubts about similarity with the name of another prior journal in the field of nephrology and urology. According to the main scientific fields, we selected “Nephro-Urology” since it was a combination of Nephrology and Urology. On the other hand, we selected “Monthly” forthe journal’s title because we expect in near future we will be able to change journal’s frequency from quarterly to monthly which is our ultimate goal. This replacement will be done from 4 April 2011; Untill the due date all old addresses would be active. After the determined date (4 April 2011), all new addresses will be launched and you will be able to work with them.

By this official preface, we kindly request you to remember new journal’s title and use it in your future communications with us. Note that, as a frequent user, you donotneed to do any actionsince the old address (www.ijnu.ir ) will automatically be redirected to the new website (www.numonthly.com ). There is alsono need for authors and reviewers to perform any additional arrangements. From now on, all printed materials and online documents will be published with the new title -Nephro-Urology Monthly. Although after due date (4 April 2011) all official emails will be changed from email@ijnu.ir to email@numonthly.com, all previous emails will bevalid for one year and they will receive your messages as well.
