Epileptic Disorders has now completed a year and a half of existence. We trust the Journal has met its objectives and represents a useful and significant addition to the epilepsy literature. I wish to thank the Associated Editors, the members of the Editorial and Advisory Boards and the ad hoc reviewers whose work has been and remains essential for the quality of the Journal. I am glad to inform our readership that Epileptic Disorders is now indexed in both Current Contents Life Sciences and in Index Medicus and Medline and that this also applies to the back issues of the Journal. I expect indexation will encourage potential authors to submit first-class articles thus stimulating further improvement of the Journal quality. This issue includes a “Video Teaching Course” on the syndromes of epilepsy with absence seizures. We think it important to take advantage of our ability to publish audiovisual material to contribute to this novel form of teaching. We are prepared to consider for publication similar teaching material on other aspects of epilepsy that could be submitted to Epileptic Disorders. Acceptance of such material would require not only an excellent quality of the images and comments but also full permission from the patients and/or families to be used for exclusive medical purposes.
