At Sleep.org, we are committed to connecting our readers with the information and resources they need to get a good night’s sleep.
Who We Are
Our mission is to provide informative, data-driven content and recommendations about sleep health, science, and products. We pride ourselves on expertise and experience in these fields, and each member of our team has spent years researching sleep-related topics. Every guide that appears on our site has been rigorously fact-checked for complete accuracy. We also routinely reevaluate and update our content to reflect evolving science and changing trends. The bottom line: We want you to sleep better, and we take every available measure to achieve this end result.
In December 2019, OneCare Media acquired Sleep.org with the goal of continuing the site’s longstanding mission of sleep education and advocacy while increasing readership and expanding its content. The new Sleep.org features commercial guides and reviews in addition to the data-driven scientific articles readers have come to expect from this site. We hope this comprehensive approach will serve our readers in all aspects of their sleep health.
Medical Advisory Board: The Sleep.org medical advisory board reviews and approves every article and guide concerning sleep health, medicine, and wellness topics. This level of oversight ensures our content is completely accurate and up to date. The board includes physicians, psychologists, and academic researchers. Each member has a strong background in the fields of sleep health and medicine, and their expertise serves as the authoritative foundation of our scientific content.
Editorial Staff: Our team of experts consists of writers, editors, researchers, and product analysts. Each member brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the articles, guides, and product reviews you’ll find on Sleep.org. We are dedicated to helping you understand sleep science and recommending sleep products that can have a meaningful impact on your life, well-being, and personal health.
The information on this website is intended to encourage — not replace — direct relationships between patients and health care professionals. Always consult your doctor before making any decisions or changes regarding a medical condition or treatment.
Sleep.org maintains professional relationships with companies that produce and sell sleep products. These relationships include cost-per-click and affiliate fee arrangements that generate commissions through product links. We also participate in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, for which we receive a commission from Amazon.com whenever a reader visits that site using a link embedded on one of our pages.
We receive a commission whenever our readers click a product link on our site and purchase that item from one of our partners. This commission is rescinded if the reader ultimately decides to return the product. For this reason, we strive to recommend high-quality products and avoid promoting inferior items based on requests from current or prospective partners.
The product reviews, rankings, and recommendations on our site come from hours of research and in-person testing. We never receive any financial payment from companies in exchange for promoting their products on our site. Although our partners send us free products that are used for research purposes, these products do not guarantee favorable placements in our guides.
