Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Volume 6

Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Volume 6
Editor:Douglas H. Harris Anacapa Sciences
Year Published:2010

Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics Volume 6 is available online! The print edition is sold out.

The latest volume of Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics reflects the editor’s aim "to gain participation from the broadest range of expertise that exists in the Society and the profession. The six chapters in Volume 6 present what we know about specific areas of human factors/ergonomics—state of knowledge, important current issues, and further research needs. As in previous volumes, chapters focus on research findings applicable to enhancing human performance through the design of systems, devices and processes. They identify the ways in which research informs theory and also how the results are applicable to design methodologies and decisions."
