Editorial message from Editor-in-Chief
It is my great honor to announce the birth of Acta Epilepsia, a new open access, peer-reviewed journal of the China Association Against Epilepsy(CAAE).
Acta Epilepsia will rapidly publish robust and high-quality results that provide insights into all aspects of epilepsy research, covering basic, translational and clinical research in epilepsy. Submissions of high-quality research on the mechanisms of epileptogenesis, broader comorbidities of epilepsy, new treatments and their measures are especially welcome. Acta Epilepsia also publishes communications and guidelines from the CAAE. This new journal is to serve as a unique forum committed to facilitating basic and clinical epilepsy research by providing trustworthy and speedy publishing service.
We hope this new journal will further stimulate the individualized treatment of epilepsy and provide evidence-based medical advice to doctors in rural areas and less developed countries at the same time. We have assembled a strong editorial team with outstanding epileptic experts worldwide, and we will keep strengthening it in terms of academic authority, specialty balance and epileptic scope. On behalf of the journal editorial committee, I promise to provide the authors unbiased, constructive, and timely peer reviews to help disseminate their research findings expeditiously and broadly; to present the readers with original, high-quality research papers to facilitate them to keep pace with the latest developments in the related areas of epilepsy.
We are confident to establish Acta Epilepsia as a reputable forum for the international epilepsy community.
Your manuscript and feedback are most welcome!
Thank you for your warm support to Acta Epilepsia.
Editor-in-Chief of Acta Epilepsia
