Clinical Trials Virtual Issue
Epilepsia is happy to introduce a series of “Virtual Issues” to our readers. These Virtual Issues consist of papers that have appeared in the Journal over the past few years on a particular topic or theme.
The present Virtual Issue, on “Clinical Trials,” offers a look at important discussions, insight from experts, and research accomplishments in this area of epilepsy research. This collection is intended to help epilepsy researchers put their own studies in perspective and provide a data base upon which new investigations can build.
The editors of Epilepsia hope that this consolidated and convenient format will be of value to you. We value your comments on this new initiative and look forward to your suggestions about topics for future Virtual Issues.
If you are looking to publish clinical trial results, please take advantage of our fast-track review process and send your papers to: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/epilepsia.
The articles in this virtual issue are sourced solely from the most trusted, well-respected epilepsy journal, Epilepsia. Find articles of interest to you using our quick reference menu below:
