Journal SLEEP

The journal SLEEP is the official publication of the Sleep Research Society. SLEEP is the leading peer-reviewed journal in sleep and circadian science.

Each issue includes original findings and analysis related to sleep disorders, medical dysfunctions during sleep, clinical investigations, therapeutic trials, physiologic events, anatomic structures and molecular components underlying normal and abnormal sleep, psychological and psychophysiologic research and the pharmacology of sleep.

SRS members receive online access to SLEEP as a benefit of membership.

Beginning March 1, 2017, SRS Members must log in their SRS Member Account to get full access to all of the journal articles.

Call for Papers: Big Data

SLEEP is pleased to announce a call for papers on Mining Big Data to Inform Translational and Clinical Sleep and Circadian Research.

In the era of “big data”, data characterized by high volume, variety, velocity and veracity, the availability of novel tools for processing and analyzing large sets of data have the potential to inform and transform translational and clinical sleep/circadian research and clinical practice. These tools, collectively referred to as machine learning, while powerful, need to be applied with attention to their limitations. Correlated predictors could produce unstable estimates and algorithms could “over-fit” the data, leading to spurious results. To ensure replicability of results and avoid exaggerated claims about real-world performance, it is important to validate models. Attention to potential biases in data during the collection phase is also critical as biased data could affect both validity and generalizability of findings.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts for consideration for a special issue of SLEEP. We are soliciting submissions of rigorous data driven manuscripts using large data sets. Learn more

New Opportunity: Trainee Journal Club

Journal Club Reviews are authored by Sleep Research Society trainee members. These reviews are a summary, critical review and discussion of impact/significance of on an article recently published in SLEEP and should be written in the style of an Editorial, with no abstract, significance statement or subheadings.  Eligible authors are graduate students and postdoctoral research fellows who are current trainee members of the Sleep Research Society. Co-authored manuscripts are encouraged but not required.  The submission fee will be waived for SRS members. View full details.
