The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) board of directors has appointed an Editor Search Committee to evaluate applicants and make a recommendation for the selection of the next editor-in-chief of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine (JCSM). In December, the AASM will begin accepting applications from candidates interested in being considered for the position.

The AASM began publishing JCSM in 2005, and today it remains the exclusive source of AASM clinical practice guidelines, position statements, and other guidance, as well as peer-reviewed sleep and circadian research, systematic reviews, commentaries, and editorials. The AASM seeks an editor who will help elevate the journal as the premier publication for the best clinical sleep and circadian science. The AASM provides a stipend to the editor’s institution to help offset the time required to serve in the position.

Candidates will be asked to submit an application including a curriculum vitae, conflict of interest disclosure form, and detailed vision for the future of the journal. The current AASM conflict of interest policy is available online for review.

The position of editor-in-chief is a five-year appointment that is renewable for one term. The current editor, Dr. Nancy Collop, will conclude her second term Dec. 31, 2024. The term of the next editor will begin Jan. 1, 2025.

Complete details will be provided in December when the announcement and application materials are posted on the AASM website.
