Human Factors: The Journal of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HF)
is a bimonthly peer-reviewed journal presenting original works of scientific
merit that contribute to the understanding and advancement of the systematic
consideration of people in relation to machines, systems, tools, and
environments. Human Factors highlights fundamental human capabilities,
limitations, and tendencies, as well as the basics of human performance,
with the goal of promoting improvements in the human-system interface that
lead to safer and more effective use.

Articles encompass the applications and implications of laboratory and
real-world research, quantitative and qualitative approaches to theory,
evaluative reviews of the literature, and state-of-the-art reviews that
cover all aspects of the human-system interface.

Each issue of Human Factors offers broad-based, multidisciplinary research
on topics such as

* Accidents, Safety, and Human Error
* Aerospace Systems
* Aging
* Attentional Processes
* Automation and Expert Systems
* Biomechanics, Anthropometry and Work Physiology
* Cognitive Processes
* Communication Systems
* Computer Systems
* Consumer Products and Tools
* Displays and Controls
* Health and Medical Systems; Patient Safety
* Individual Differences
* Macroergonomics and the Environment
* Manufacturing and Process Control Systems
* Naturalistic Decision Making
* Psychological States
* Psychomotor Processes
* Sensation and Perception
* Simulation and Virtual Reality
* Situation Awareness
* Surface Transportation Systems
* Training, Education, and Instructional Systems
* Visual Systems
* Work System and Workload Analysis

Human Factors will be of particular interest to those interested in human
factors/ergonomics, robotics, human-computer interaction, training,
industrial engineering, applied psychology, cognitive science, design,
biomechanics, architecture, aeronautics, military systems, medical systems,
and transportation.
