A note from the Editor

Our quarterly, peer-reviewed journal, has now been publishing since 2013. The publication remains the only fatigue-focused scientific journal in biomedicine, and across the life sciences.

My background as a clinical psychologist, and now as a researcher of chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS), has sharpened my interest in the topic of fatigue. Apart from the ordinary fatigue of daily life, fatigue can become a potentially debilitating symptom related to illness and/or high-impact life activities. In my laboratory, I focus on the physiological underpinnings of fatigue in ME/CFS with study participants carrying out biobehavioral monitoring and intervention activities in their homes.

About a decade ago, I decided to approach academic publishers with the idea of starting up a broad-based fatigue journal that encompasses fatigue in all its expressions, from fatigue impacts in medical and behavioral illness to fatigue as an important issue related to sleep and aging, and as a performance factor in occupations, exercise and athletics. All of these topics are now covered in Fatigue. Our journal is the realization of many years of advancing the credibility of fatigue as an important topic of scientific inquiry. And we have a distinguished multi-disciplinary editorial board to support and sustain our scholarly enterprise.

We welcome your interest and invite your submissions to Fatigue: Biomedicine, Health and Behavior.

With best regards, 
Fred Friedberg, PhD
