Many self-reported sleep instruments have been developed and adapted into many languages, including Turkish, and their psychometric properties have been examined. This study aims to present a literature review on self-report instruments adapted into Turkish and used to assess diferent aspects of sleep in child, adolescent, and adult populations. Terms related to sleep self-report instruments were applied to 4 search engines: PubMed, EMBASE, Scopus, and Google Scholar. The search engines were searched for articles published until October 2023. Assessment instruments whose psychometric properties were not evaluated in Turkish language were excluded from the study. This study defined 27 sleep instruments, including 9 child and adolescent and 18 adult sleep instruments. Increasing the availability of Turkish sleep tools for children and adult will improve the chance of intervention by increasing the identification of sleep disorders.
