It is widely accepted that insufficient and poor-quality sleep are high-risk factors for health outcomes such as diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension cardiovascular disease, malignant neoplasm, and cerebrovascular disease. It also has deleterious effects on quality of life, cognitive performance, and workplace productivity and accidents. Given the potential adverse effects of insufficient and poor-quality sleep on health, wellbeing and productivity, the consequences of sleep-deprivation have far-reaching societal and economic consequences.
However, most previous studies on interactions between health-related outcomes and sleep have not analyzed “sleep quality” and mainly focused on “sleep duration”. Recently, it became possible to monitor “sleep quality” with wearable devices and portable electroencephalography devices.
We would like to accept studies on both subjective and objective measurements of “sleep quality” using interviews, questionnaires, portable monitors, wearable devices, etc. Studies on outcomes of “sleep quality” or intervention on “sleep quality” are very welcome. Methodology reports to develop or evaluate new metrics, devices, or algorithms are also welcome. Such studies will eventually contribute to health and wellbeing.
