Journal of Sleep Disorders: Treatment and Care is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal in the field of sleep medicine that aims to publish the most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all areas of sleep medicine and making them accessible online freely without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide.

Journal of Sleep Disorders: Treatment and Care focuses on the topics include, but are not restricted to: Physiology of Sleep & Wakefulness, Circadian rhythm Sleep disorder, Phenomenology of sleep disorders, Pharmacotherapy of sleep disordersAging and sleep, Bruxism, Developmental aspects of sleep, Delayed sleep, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Sleep Snoring, Sleep Deprivation, Sleepwalking, Insomnia, Narcolepsy, Restless Leg Syndrome(RLS), Shift Work Sleep Disorder, Hypersomnia, Sleep Paralysis.

The journal is using Editorial Manager System for quality in review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Sleep Disorders: Treatment and Care or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.

Confirmed Special Issues:

  1. Sleep Apnea: Current Diagnosis and Treatment
  2. Insomnia: Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

Journal of Sleep Disorders: Treatment and Care is organizing & supporting 2nd International Confernce on Sleep Disorders and Medicine which is going to be held during November 28-30, 2015 Chicago, USA. Special interest and theme of the conference is “Medical conditions related to sleep disorders and advanced sleep therapy.

Physiology of Sleep & Wakefulness

Physiology of Sleep & Wakefulness is the study of the neuroscientific and physiological basis of the nature of sleep and its functions. Sleep is broadly divided into two types- rapid eye movement (REM) and non-rapid eye movement (NREM or non-REM) sleep. Physiology of sleep involves the study of brain mechanisms which control wakefulness.

Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorder

Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders are a set of sleep disorders resulting in abnormalities in length, timing, and rigidity of the sleep-wake cycle relative to the day-night cycle. People with circadian rhythm sleep disorders are unable to sleep and wake at the times required for normal routine life.

Aging and Sleep

Along with the physical changes that occur as we go old their exists changes to our sleep patterns which are a part of the normal aging process. Although these changes are a normal part of aging, disturbed sleep, waking up tired every morning.

Delayed Sleep

Delayed Sleep is a sleep disorder where the major sleep episode is delayed by two or more hours of the regular bedtime which causes difficulty in awakening at the desired time.

Hypopnea Syndrome

Hypoapnea syndrome or Obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. It is caused by obstruction to the upper airway. The pauses in sleep are called as apnea.

Sleep Snoring

Snoring is a common condition that can affects everyone, although it occurs more commonly in men and people who are obese. Snoring has a tendency to worsen with age. Snoring may occur at night or day times.

Sleep Deprivation

Sleep deprivation occurs when an individual fails to get enough sleep that a person required. The amount of sleep a person requires changes from one person to another; generally most adults need about seven to eight hours of sleep each night to feel alert and well rested. Sleep Deprivation may be chronic or acute.

Insomnia

Insomnia is a sleep disorder that is characterized by difficulty in falling and being in asleep conditions. It is also termed as sleeplessness which is characterised by symptoms of difficulty in sleeping, waking up early in the morning, feeling fatigue up on waking.

Sleep Medicine

Sleep medicine is a medical specialty or subspecialty devoted to the diagnosis and therapy of sleep disturbances. Sleep medicine studies has provided increasing knowledge and answered many questions about sleep-wake functioning.

Electroencephalogram

An electroencephalogram is a test that is conducted to measure and record the electrical activity of brain. Special sensors like electrodes are attached to head and hook to a computer that records brains electrical activity. Electroencephalogram Helps in detecting certain neurological disorders such as epilepsy.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure is a therapy that uses a machine to help a person suffering with obstructive sleep apnea. It helps the person to breathe more easily during sleep. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine increases air pressure in your throat so that your airway doesn't collapse when you breathe in.

Behavioral Sleep

Behavioral Sleep is also called as dream-enacting behaviour that involves abnormal behaviour during the sleep phase with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. It is characterised with unpleasant dreams with vocal sounds.

*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 than, impact factor = Y/X
