The National Sleep Foundation’s (NSF) Sleep Health journal has received a 2020 Impact Factor of 4.450. This is the first time it was included in Clarivate’s annual Journal Citation Reports.
Sleep Health grew in published output, impact, and citations reflecting a prominent relevance across the sleep research and health fields. “We’re proud that Sleep Health continues to be an indispensable resource for sleep researchers,” says Orfeu Buxton, PhD, editor-in-chief of Sleep Health, in a release. “Our authors, peer reviewers, and editors deserve tremendous credit for their contributions to sleep research. The increases we’ve observed in our Journal’s citations and impact are due to the remarkable growth in output and readership that would not have been possible without their hard work and dedication.”
“The Journal’s high Impact Factor is a testament to how it is helping to connect sleep researchers and public health scholars from all over the world to work together to advance sleep health. The Journal has helped strengthen the connections between the sleep research and public health communities,” says Lauren Hale, PhD, chair of the National Sleep Foundation, in a release.
