Epilepsy is a neurological disorder which is mainly related to the central nervous system in which the activity of the nerve cell inside the brain is disturbed, causing a seizure during which the patient experience abnormal behavior, symptoms and sensations, including lacking of consciousness. Epilepsy is considered to be a spectrum condition which is classified with a wider range of seizure types and their controlling activities varying from one individual to another.
Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. Open Access articles and self-archiving. Open Access articles are immediately, freely available on their Web site, a model mostly funded by charges paid by the author (usually through a research grant). The alternative for a researcher is self-archiving (i.e., to publish in a traditional journal, where only subscribers have immediate access, but to make the article available on their personal and/or institutional Web sites (including so-called repositories or archives)), which is a practice allowed by many scholarly journals.
