About Epileptic Disorders
Epileptic Disorders is the educational E-journal of the International League Against Epilepsy. It publishes articles that are not only concerned with the clinical manifestations of epilepsy, but also all aspects of diagnosis, natural history and management of seizure disorders, including neurophysiological, imaging and other ancillary techniques. A major feature of the E-journal is the publication of accompanying video material.
As we approach the 20th anniversary of the E-journal, Epileptic Disorders is undergoing a change. Firstly, the journal will be available only as an online version. Secondly, this is accompanied by an increase in the number of issues per year, from four to six, to ensure regular diffusion of recently published material to serve the global medical community that cares for those affected by epilepsy.
