    Volume 3 of Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics presents six 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 in Volume 3 include:
    • analysis of cognitive work
    • macroergonomics
    • human factors of homeland security
    • task interruptions
    • research-based guidelines for multimedia instruction
    • railroad human factors
    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.
    "Be sure to acquire this and the other review volume[s] in the . . . series, as no forward-thinking HF/E researcher or practitioner should be without them."(Ergonomics in Design book review, Spring 2007)
