HFES announces Release of Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Volume 6

SANTA MONICA, CAThe Human Factors and Ergonomics Society has just released the newest volume in the Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics annual series. Volume 6 reflects editor Douglas H. Harris's aim "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/ergonomicsstate of knowledge, important current issues, and further research needs."

Chapters cover transportation accident investigation, supervisory control challenges in network-centric operations, prospective memory in the workplace and in daily life, the human control of technology, human performance in space, and judgment and decision making by individuals and teams.

Harris says of the volume, "These chapters provide, in a single source, information to help students gain a full range of knowledge in the field, a solid foundation on which researchers can pursue further insights, and information that will facilitate the application of research findings to issues of human performance in systems and organizations. With these accounts of what we now know in significant areas of human endeavor, we can design and undertake future projects that will most effectively advance our state of knowldege."

Raymond S. Nickerson, who has served as Reviews series editor for Volumes 1 through 6, notes, "With the publication of Volume 6 of Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, 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."
