    About the Series
    Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics contains extensive, in-depth reviews of work on topics of special interest to the HF/E community. The reviews are written by invited authors on the basis of their recognized expertise in the topic areas. The topics are selected by the editor of each volume in consultation with the series editor and a committee that acts as a consulting resource for the publication. The intent is to cover the entire range of HF/E research over time.
    The Volumes in the Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics series is a major information resource for HF/E researchers and practitioners. Researchers who are actively doing work in any of the topics reviewed should find this an invaluable resource. Those doing work on topics not yet reviewed have the opportunity to influence, by their suggestions, the selection of topics for future review. To meet the needs of practitioners, chapter authors are required to make explicit the practical implications and applications of the work they have reviewed.
