The following categories of epilepsy related topics are accepted for publications: medical hypotheses, basic research, clinical research, reviews and special reports, product investigation, diagnostic and medical technology, case reports, letters to Editor, reports from international and local activities.

The aim of the journal is to widen the international community of readers, research and clinicians interested in various aspects of epilepsy and disseminate interdisciplinary knowledge in all fields related to epilepsy.

The Journal of Epileptology is owned by the Foundation of Epileptology which was established in 1993 by Professor Jerzy Majkowski. The Foundation of Epileptology is the first non-governmental organization in Poland whose priority is to improve the quality of life of persons with epilepsy by improving the diagnostic and therapeutic skills of doctors and by shaping a positive attitude to epilepsy among the public. The Foundation, led by this idea, brings together physicians, psychologists, scientists and academics, social activists and other people who wish to contribute to the development of epileptology and thus provide medical assistance to persons with epilepsy.
