Results: This paper analyzed 65,270 articles on epilepsy research, showing that Epilepsy Behavior and Epilepsy Research were journals with the largest number of articles concerning epilepsy research in the world and China, respectively. The number of published epilepsy-related articles accounts for 5.43% of the global published articles and 3.29% of the published articles in China.
