    Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Volume 2 is available online! The print edition is sold out.

    Volume 2 of Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics presents eight reviews of current topics of practical significance to 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 include

    • situation awareness
    • crew resource management training
    • representation aiding
    • usability assessment methods
    • divergent visual needs in user-centered computing
    • multidimensional aspects of slips and falls
    • hearing in noise
    • design of effective warnings
    About the Series
     
    Each review in each volume of Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics covers a specific topic of timeliness and importance for HF/E researchers and practitioners. Volumes are broader in scope than handbooks and deeper in detail than encyclopedias, and they include both discipline-oriented and problem-oriented chapters. As it develops, the Reviews series will constitute an increasingly broad coverage of the entire field, establishing itself as the primary reference for an overview summary and status review of central HF/E topics – one that is important to students, researchers, practitioners, and the informed public.
