Scope/Description:

Nature and Science of Sleep is an international peerreviewed open access journal covering all aspects of sleep science and sleep medicine including the neurophysiology and functions of sleep the genetics of sleep sleep and society biological rhythms dreaming sleep disorders and therapy and strategies to optimize healthy sleep. Specific topics covered in the journal include The functions of sleep in humans and other animalsPhysiological and neurophysiological changes with sleepThe genetics of sleep and sleep differencesThe neurotransmitters receptors and pathways involved in controlling both sleep and wakefulnessBehavioral and pharmacological interventions aimed at improving sleep and improving wakefulnessSleep changes with development and with ageSleep and reproduction e.g. changes across the menstrual cycle with pregnancy and menopauseThe science and nature of dreamsSleep disordersImpact of sleep and sleep disorders on health daytime function and quality of lifeSleep problems secondary to clinical disordersInteraction of society with sleep e.g. consequences of shift work occupational health public healthThe microbiome and sleepChronotherapyImpact of circadian rhythms on sleep physiology cognition and healthMechanisms controlling circadian rhythms centrally and peripherallyImpact of circadian rhythm disruptions including night shift work jet lag and social jet lag on sleep physiology cognition and healthBehavioral and pharmacological interventions aimed at reducing adverse effects of circadianrelated sleep disruptionAssessment of technologies and biomarkers for measuring sleep andor circadian rhythmsEpigenetic markers of sleep or circadian disruption.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?


III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Nature and Science of Sleep
H-Index

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
