Editorial Policy

Our Goal

HearingResearch.org is a trusted source of accurate and unbiased information about hearing-related topics.

We are also aware that hearing science is a complex field. To help our readers better understand these dense topics, we conduct extensive research and distill this information into clear, accessible sleep guides and recommendations. We also regularly review the content on our site to ensure every page is up-to-date and aligned with current research trends and findings.

Our Sourcing Policy

In order to provide our readers with authoritative content, we exclusively use reputable, data-driven sources. We will never publish a fact or data point without reviewing it for authenticity and bias. Sources we use include:

  • Legitimate medical associations
  • Reports and polling data published by government agencies
  • Data that originates from college- and university-level research
  • Systematic reviews of peer-reviewed medical journals

Our Team of Experts

Prior to publication, our content undergoes a rigorous vetting process. Our dedicated team of health and medical writers thoroughly research each topic before submitting their work for approval. Once this first step is complete, our Medical Review Panel fact-checks and revises these drafts to make sure they are accurate and free of bias. This panel consists of physicians, psychologists, physical therapists, and other medical specialists with backgrounds specifically related to sleep science.

We’ve created these expert teams to improve the timeliness and quality of our health-related content. Each of these pages lists the original author and medical reviewers in the byline.
