Elsevier Launches New Open Access Journal - Epilepsy & Behavior Case Reports



 Elsevier Launches New Open Access Journal - Epilepsy & Behavior Case Reports

  PR Newswire

  NEW YORK, November 26, 2012

NEW YORK, 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, 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."

Articles published in Epilepsy & Behavior Case Reports are freely available to
anyone and are published online on ScienceDirect .
