A new partnership between the Sleep Research Society (SRS) and the Australasian Sleep Association (ASA) will expand the reach of two of the leading journals in sleep and circadian science. SLEEP and SLEEP Advances, the official journals of the SRS, are now also the official journals of the ASA. The partnership will expand the journals’ visibility outside of North America and broaden the research published.
“Increasing the international presence of the journals will promote the dissemination of cutting-edge sleep and circadian research,” said SRS president H. Craig Heller, PhD. “It also encourages international researchers to publish their research in these journals.”
The SRS’s strategic plan calls for developing international partnerships to build a more robust, diverse and engaged sleep and circadian research community, and the agreement with ASA is a step toward achieving that goal.
“We are pleased to partner with the SRS and adopt the journal SLEEP and SLEEP Advances as our official journals,” said ASA president Alan Young. “This agreement gives our members access to the most current sleep and circadian science research and improved opportunities for publication in these prestigious journals.”
Under the agreement, ASA members will have free access to the journals and receive member pricing for open access fees.
