Sixth Volume of Reviews of Human Factors Released
The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society released the newest volume in the series on Nov. 16.
Two chapters of the sixth volume of Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, an annual series published by The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, concern human performance in space and transportation accident investigation as it relates to the development of human factors research and practice. HFES began offering Volume 6 on Nov. 16 and is selling it for the HFES member price to any member of a society affiliated with the International Ergonomics Association.
The member price is $80 for the book or the online publication, while non-members will pay $90. Bulk orders are lower, while institutions pay $118 for a single print copy and $108 for online.
This volume's editor is Douglas H. Harris, Ph.D., chairman and principal scientist at Anacapa Sciences Inc., a company he helped to form in 1969 to improve human performance in complex systems and organizations, according to HFES. He has said the aim of this volume was "to gain participation from the broadest range of expertise that exists in the society and the profession. The six chapters in Volume 6 present what we know about specific areas of human factors/ergonomics -- state of knowledge, important current issues, and further research needs."
Raymond S. Nickerson, Reviews series editor for all six volumes, said the series "now constitutes a collection of 41 in-depth reviews of human factors/ergonomics work on topics of concern to HF/E researchers and practitioners and to other users of the findings of HF/E research. The collection is very timely; the individual expositions are not only highly informative regarding recent work in the covered areas but also strongly motivating with respect to opportunities and challenges for future work."
