Editorial: Society of behavioral sleep medicine (SBSM) announces the adoption of Behavioral Sleep Medicine (BSM) as the society's official journal.
Since its birth in the 1930s with the development of the bell and pad treatment for nocturnal enuresis, behavioral sleep medicine (BSM) has expanded to include interventions targeting a variety of sleep disorders. During its early development, BSM lacked a focused, professional identity as researchers and clinicians published in a variety of journals and joined a variety of professional organizations. Recently, a more focused identity has emerged with the establishment of a dedicated journal, Behavioral Sleep Medicine (BSM, in 2003), and a professional society (in 2010), Society of Behavioral Sleep Medicine (SBSM). In this editorial, the SBSM announces the adoption of BSM as its official journal. This represents an important next step in BSM's development, allowing for increased coordination between BSM's intellectual and professional homes.
