Cardiovascular and Metabolic Consequences of Sleep and/or Circadian Disruption

Over the past decade, several key cross-sectional and prospective epidemiological studies have concluded that sleep and circadian disorders are associated with a number of cardiovascular and metabolic disorders including hypertension, diabetes, stroke, coronary heart disease, sudden cardiac death, myocardial infarction, and cardiovascular mortality.  However, the physiological mechanisms underlying many of these associations remain equivocal. The Editors of AJP-Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology extend an invitation to submit original research articles related to the topic Cardiovascular and Metabolic Consequences of Sleep and/or Circadian Disruption.  Both human and animal studies are encouraged.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Cross-sectional and prospective population-based studies examining the associations between sleep/circadian system and cardiovascular and metabolic disease (i.e., hypertension, diabetes, etc.)

  • Observational studies examining the role of sleep and/or circadian rhythm on autonomic, cardiovascular, renal, and metabolic control in humans and animals

  • Interventional studies examining the impact of sleep and/or circadian modulation on autonomic, cardiovascular, renal, and metabolic control in humans and animals

  • Neural, cellular, and molecular mechanisms that regulate sleep and/or circadian rhythm in humans and animals

  • Role of sex (i.e., male vs. female) on sleep and circadian regulation in humans and animals

  • Novel methods to objectively assess sleep and/or circadian function in experimental or clinical settings

All manuscripts from this Call for Papers will be included in a unique online article collection, further highlighting the importance of this topic. The article collection may also include commissioned review articles related to the topic (invite only). Dr. Jason Carter (Michigan Technological University) will serve as the Guest Editor for this Call for Papers.


Manuscripts should be submitted online via eJournal Press. During the online submission process, under the “Keywords & Special Sections” tab, please use the “Category” dropdown menu and select: “Call for Papers: Cardiovascular and Metabolic Consequences of Sleep and/or Circadian Disruption.” Manuscripts will undergo normal peer-review as they are received. Accepted manuscripts will be published online as they are accepted. Articles published from this Call for Papers will be highlighted with a special Call for Papers banner at the time of publication.


Manuscripts can be submitted anytime, but to be eligible for inclusion in this Call for Papers, they must be submitted by May 1, 2018.
