Special Issue on

Meningitis, Encephalitis and Meningococcal Disease


Meningitis is defined as the inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord known as the meninges. Encephalitis is the inflammation of the brain. Encephalitis with meningitis is known as meningoencephalitis. Meningococcal disease is any infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitidis, or meningococcus. Having meningitis doesn't always mean you have meningococcal disease. And having meningococcal disease doesn’t necessarily mean you have meningitis. These conditions are different from each other, but some have similar symptoms and sometimes overlap with each other.  


In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring Meningitis, Encephalitis and Meningococcal Disease. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


  • Limbic encephalitis
  • Viral encephalitis
  • Bacterial meningitis
  • Viral meningitis
  • Fungal meningitis
  • Parasitic meningitis
  • Non-infectious meningitis
  • Meningococcus
  • Meningococcal vaccine
  • Meningism
  • Meningoencephalitis
  • Blood tests and imaging
  • Neisseria meningitides


Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Meningitis, Encephalitis and Meningococcal Disease” should be selected during your submission.
