Council of Management meeting - February 2014

4 February 2014

The Council of Management met on 4 February for its first meeting of the year.

The main feature of the meeting was a presentation given by Professor Markus Reuber, Editor-in-Chief of Seizure. Seizure is the European Journal of Epilepsy, a publication set up more than 20 years ago by Epilepsy Action to publish scientific and academic articles about epilepsy. It is unique among medical journals of its type because it is owned by a charity representing a broad range of interests in epilepsy including people with the condition.

The Council was delighted to hear about the excellent progress the journal has been making under Professor Reuber’s leadership. In the 3 and half years he has been in charge, Seizure has improved its status and reputation. It now receives more manuscripts and has had to increase the number of pages it publishes to accommodate them, without compromising on its high standards and quality.

A big factor in Seizure’s development has been Professor Reuber’s innovative and committed approach. He has introduced several new features and refreshed the members of the editorial board who assist him in preparing the content. The board now represents an exciting group of renowned experts from all over the world. Most recently, Professor Reuber has been promoting Seizure in China. This has been helped by the appointment of Professor WP Liao from Guangzhou as a Deputy Editor.

Academic publishing is a dynamic, competitive and challenging field. But the Council was reassured to hear that Seizure is doing extremely well and that it has exciting plans for the future including developing its online presence.

The next meeting of the Council is scheduled to take place on 8 April 2014.
