    Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Volume 1 is now online!

    HFES is proud to announce the publication of the first volume in the Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics annual series. This volume presents six reviews of current topics of practical significance for human factors/ergonomics (HF/E) researchers and practitioners and anyone interested in the design of user-centered devices, systems, and processes. Each chapter provides implications for future research and real-world applications. Topics in Volume 1 include

    • biomechanical modeling
    • human-automation interaction
    • technology and aging
    • driving safety
    • improving product safety and effectiveness in the home
    • reducing and mitigating human error in medicine


    Raymond S. Nickerson is a former senior vice president of Bolt Beranek and Newman, Inc., from which he is retired, and is now a research professor at Tufts University, from which he received a PhD in experimental psychology. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Psychological Association, the American Psychological Society, the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, and the Society of Experimental Psychologists.

    "This volume constitutes an excellent illustration of the scope, depth, and practical significance of the contributions the human factors/ergonomics field is making toward safer, more effective, more reliable systems in today's technology-driven society. It should be of interest to a variety of audiences. As the initial volume in a continuing and rather unique series, it sets a superb example for its successors to follow." — William C. Howell, Adjunct Professor of Psychology, Arizona State University and Rice University

    "This first volume documents the current state of the art in a wide-ranging selection of application areas prepared by many of the distinguished leaders in our field. Each of the six chapters contains not only a definitive review of the research literature, but also a cogent discussion of how these results are finding their way into design tools, products, services and system applications. Readers will immediately recognize the value of signing up to receive the entire series." — Dick Pew, Principal Scientist, BBN Technologies

    "The long-range objective of Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics is to provide a major resource for researchers, practitioners, and other potential users of human factors and ergonomics research findings. We hope that as the volumes accumulate, the series will become the first place one thinks to look for extensive reviews of the various areas of HF/E work." – From the Preface by Raymond S. Nickerson
