Sleep Medicine has an open access companion journal Sleep Medicine: X with a specific scope and topic, but the same Editorial Board and peer-review process.

Sleep Medicine aims to be a journal no one involved in clinical sleep medicine can do without.

A journal primarily focussing on the human aspects of sleep, integrating the various disciplines that are involved in sleep medicine: neurology, clinical neurophysiology, internal medicine (particularly pulmonology and cardiology), psychology, psychiatry, sleep technology, pediatrics, neurosurgery, otorhinolaryngology, and dentistry.

The journal publishes the following types of articles: Reviews (also intended as a way to bridge the gap between basic sleep research and clinical relevance); Original Research Articles; Full-length articles; Brief communications; Controversies; Case reports; Letters to the Editor.

Specific features include: Hot topic series: These focus series present four to six invited review articles, written by excellent experts in the field. The series address major topics of sleep medicine, e.g. sleep related breathing disturbances, insomnia, new technologies in sleep medicine etc.). Each paper focuses on most recent developments in pathophysiology, diagnostics and clinics of various facets of the general topic.

Special issues: These series welcome individual submissions of original articles around a general topic (e.g. pediatric sleep medicine in Europe). Papers can be submitted in a defined time range. Special Section Editors manage submission and review process.
