This issue of Epileptic Disorders marks the beginning of the second year of the journal. I hope the quality of the journal during its first year of existence has been appreciated by our readers: we shall continue our effort to further improve the contents and interest of Epileptic Disorders. This first year of publication has shown that the use of videotapes to illustrate the clinical phenomena of seizures and their differential diagnosis has been well received. Clearly, the image is going to play an increasing role in the next century and we shall make every effort to improve the quality of the visual material. At the end of this first year, I wish to thank those who generously gave their time and effort to support us, especially the members of the Editorial and Advisory Boards and to the ad hoc reviewers who helped them. The quality of a journal is critically dependent on that of its reviewers and we greatly value their generous contribution. Sadly, this year has been marked by the untimely death of a prominent member of the Board, Claudio Munari, a tragic loss for Epileptic Disorders. New, distinguished members are joining the Boards this year. I am confident they will contribute to increasing the interest and quality of the journal.
