November 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announces the launch of
Epilepsy & Behavior Case Reports a new, online-only, Open Access journal devoted to the rapid publication of case reports on the behavioral aspects of seizures and epilepsy. As a sister journal to
Epilepsy & Behavior, case reports published in the new journal will benefit from wide exposure and cross-promotion of the two titles.
Epilepsy & Behavior Case Reports presents original peer-reviewed case reports that feature novel observations, significantly add to previously-reported observations, or provide compelling illustrations of important clinical principles related to the care of patients who have epilepsy and associated behavioral aspects. Topics are drawn from a variety of fields, including clinical neurology, neurosurgery, neuropsychiatry, neuropsychology, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, and neuroimaging.
Steve Schachter, Professor at the Department of Neurology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center,
Boston, MA, USA and Editor-in-Chief of
Epilepsy & Behavior Case Reports said of the launch, "Case reports are the beacons of the scientific frontier, drawing the attention of the scientific community to previously unknown, unobserved, or unaccepted phenomena and thereby influencing the course of scientific progress. This new launch will provide the community with a highly-visible journal in which to publish case reports in this field."
Dieter Schmidt, Emeritus Professor at the Freie Universität
Berlin, Germany and Associate Editor of the journal, added, "Unexpected observations not only satisfy our curiosity, but may offer clues to better understand the natural history of epilepsy, point out potential new avenues of treatment and teach us to hone our diagnostic acumen."
