The Associated Professional Sleep Societies LLC (APSS), a joint venture of the AASM and the Sleep Research Society, will launch a redesigned website for SLEEP and transition the journal to an online-only resource beginning in 2011 with volume 34. An editorial in the September issue of SLEEP by Editor in Chief David F. Dinges, PhD, explains this transition and outlines the enhancements that will be made to the website. All AASM members will continue to receive complimentary online access to the journal as a benefit of membership.
The option of receiving a print subscription in addition to online access also is available to members in the 50 United States only. Members who wish to add a $150 print subscription to their membership must remit payment to the APSS no later than Nov. 1, 2010. Payment may be submitted online by logging in to your account on the SLEEP website or via mail/fax by downloading the SLEEP 2011 Individual Online + Print Subscription Form. Print access to the journal is pending APSS receipt of a minimum 1,000 print subscriptions by the Nov. 1, 2010, deadline. If this minimum requirement is not met, then all members who have submitted payment will be refunded and will continue to receive access to SLEEP online only. Questions about your SLEEP subscription can be directed to the APSS at firstname.lastname@example.org or 630-737-9700.
