encephalitis is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal that publishes original research articles, review/mini-review articles, and experimental or clinical studies/case reports on encephalitis and neuroinflammation. The journal was launched in January 2021 and is published quarterly on the 10th of every January, April, July, and October.

Encephalitis is a disease caused by the neuroinflammation in the brain. Neuroinflammation refers to inflammation that occurs in the nerves system. It can be triggered by a variety of causes or events, including infection, traumatic brain injury, seizure, toxic metabolites, and autoimmune responses. Acute inflammation is characterized by transient changes in inflammatory molecules, endothelial cell activation, and platelet deposition, but chronic inflammation is involved in the prolonged activation of glial cells and recruitment of other immune cells into the brain. The symptoms of encephalitis include severe headache, fever, confusion, seizures, trouble speaking, and memory problems. Although viral infections are considered the most common cause of encephalitis, in many cases the cause remains unknown, although it can be life-threatening. It is important to get a timely diagnosis and treatment.

Priority of encephalitis is given to work that provides translational and/or fundamental insight into the workings of encephalitis and neuro-immune interactions in the brain. covers a wide range of topics related to encephalitis/neuroinflammation including neuroscience, immunology, pathophysiology, pharmacology, microbiology, genomics, diagnosis, cure of infectious diseases, and related general experimental and clinical research on the nervous system. encephalitis serves as the major conduit of top-quality information for neuroscientist or neurobiologist community, as well as the neurologist community.

Acceptance for publication of submitted manuscript is determined by the editors and peer reviewers, who are experts in their specific fields of each topic. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of journal and outside experts. All published articles will be assigned DOI provided by CrossRef.
