Special Collection: Guidelines and Special Reports


Welcome to the GUIDELINES AND SPECIAL REPORTS Virtual Issue

Epilepsia periodically publishes "expert reports" on various issues important in the treatment of patients with epilepsy. These reports offer guidelines, expert opinion, and state-of-the art position papers – from the International League Against Epilepsy and from other groups with special (and usually authoritative) expertise. The Editors hope that by gathering such reports from the past few years into a Virtual Issue, we make these reports more accessible to the Epilepsia readership.
