 Epilepsia - 5.295 New Impact Factor
We are pleased to announce that Epilepsia is continuing its upward trend in impact factor and for the first time in history has reached an impact factor over 5.0.  The 2016 IF was just released and it is 5.295, up from 4.706 in 2015.  Epilepsia remains the premier journal for high quality, novel epilepsy research. We would like to warmly thank our authors, associate editors, editorial board, and reviewers for their valuable contributions to the journal.
