We are organizing a Special Issue on “Sleep Health” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH). IJERPH is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes research articles examining the intersection of environment and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to: https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/ijerph.
The Special Issue’s focus on sleep health comes at a time when insufficient sleep, poor sleep, and sleep disorders have become a global epidemic across contexts and among different groups. The perfunctory and essential questions this special issue will seek to address include:
What conditions might be driving the global increase in sleep problems?
What are the health consequences of poor sleep health?
What are the solutions to curb or remedy the burden of sleep problems and sleep-related health problems?
The current Special Issue, entitled “Sleep Health” will provide a venue to discuss these three fundamental questions.
This Special Issue is open to original research, review articles, short reports, brief commentary, case reports, meta-analyses, simulation studies, and epidemiologic models related to sleep health. The keywords listed below suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
We invite you to submit articles in the following areas:
Medications and Other Substances (alcohol, smoking, caffeine)
Psychological and Medical Conditions
Jet Lag and Shift Work
Environmental effects on sleep (temperature, noise, light, bedroom, electronic use, neighborhood characteristics)
Disparities in Sleep Health and sleep-related health conditions
Consequences of poor sleep health
