Aims and scope

The aim of this journal is to help readers understand expert views on current advances in the field of bladder dysfunction by systematically providing review articles that highlight the most important papers recently published.

We accomplish this aim by appointing major authorities in key subject areas across the discipline to select topics reviewed by leading experts who emphasize recent developments, novel research, and highlight important papers published over the past year on their topics. We also highlight areas that have not received attention in the past and are important to an international audience, such a voiding dysfunction in reconstructed bladders and voiding dysfunction associated with genitourinary infections. An Editorial Board of internationally diverse members also suggests topics of special interest to their country/region and ensures that topics are current and include emerging research.

Single-blind peer review:

The journal follows a single-blind review procedure, where the reviewers are aware of the names and affiliations of the authors, but the reviewer reports provided to authors are anonymous. Single-blind peer review is the traditional model of peer review that many reviewers are comfortable with, and it facilitates a dispassionate critique of a manuscript.
