We are organizing a Special Issue on "Sleep Disorders Across the Lifespan: A Different Perspective" 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 the environment and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to:https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
The Special Issue is focused on sleep disorders across different periods of life, from childhood to older age, encompassing adolescence and adulthood, and working life, and their impact on health, wellbeing and quality of life. Sleep disorders have become a global endemic across contexts and among different groups. The essential questions this Special Issue will seek to address are:
- Why the same sleep disorders affect different age groups in different ways? What are the different pathophysiologies?
- How are age-related differences in sleep–wake symptoms and in sleep disorders associated with health outcomes?
- What are the main age-related preventive strategies to deal with sleep disorders and sleep-related health problems?
The current Special Issue, entitled "Sleep Disorders Across the Lifespan: A Different Perspective" will provide a venue to discuss these three fundamental questions.
This Special Issue is open to original research, review articles, short reports, brief commentaries, case reports, meta-analyses, simulation studies, and epidemiologic models related to sleep disorders and their impact on health and quality of life. The keywords listed below suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
We invite you to submit articles on sleep disorders in the following areas:
- Genetic and environmental effects
- Sleep habits and sleep-wake cycle
- Sleep health and sleep-related health conditions
- Sleep disorders, sleepiness
- Co-morbidity and mortality
- Work organization and shift work
- Public health
- Occupational health
- Prevention and management
