Aim & Scope: Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science (TIES) aims to advance the science and philosophy of human factors and ergonomics (HFE). The Journal promotes a broad array of theoretical issues, methodology, and philosophical dialogues about human interactions within simple and complex systems, and is a highly respected forum for interdisciplinary discussion within this field, cutting across the human-centered design, practice, engineering, technology, and management of human-compatible systems in the broadest sense. This includes data-driven applied and experimental work as well as work derived from the practice of HFE with the caveat that the work has implications to, or addresses in some manner, theoretical issues in ergonomics science. The Journal seeks to explore the frontiers of ever expanding HFE discipline by focusing on HFE contributions to contemporary society in the context of human interactions with technology, engineering, economics and business, as well as consideration of safety and security, human ecology, sustainability, service systems, urbanization, communication, education, and social and government policies. TIES also promotes a large scale system-of-system perspective of HFE, and discusses its implications for the development of the human-centered global society.
The Journal is proactive in its mission to develop a unique HFE discipline, and seeks to define and promote theories of HFE as distinct and inherently valuable for the global knowledge community, including human factors scientists and safety engineers, ergonomists, industrial designers, industrial engineers, systems engineers, design engineers, cognitive and organizational psychologists, health care professionals, business analysts, and human-computer interaction and user experience specialists and practioners.
Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science emphasizes new knowledge, publishing original, high-quality, peer-reviewed papers as well as commissioned reviews and peer-reviewed commentaries. Topics include both qualitative and quantitative methodological frameworks and HFE theories. The Journal presents papers that discuss principles of the investigative process in research, social and historical issues, and science ofscience perspectives on HFE. Papers that examine the discipline itself, including bibliographical analyses of classic papers, are also published.
Unlike other HFE journals that deal primarily with applications, Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science focuses on theoretical aspects of the HFE discipline, such as causality and behaviour in a complex human-technology-environment systems. Above all, the Journal provides a vehicle for the dissemination of research on the underpinning scientific foundation of the discipline of HFE that no other publication covers. It creates the opportunity to consider the newest approaches of associated domains and to implant them in human-centered and human-compatible system design. Authors are encouraged to discuss extensive and coherent theories that stimulate future empirical and modelling research within the HFE discipline.
All submissions are subject to initial appraisal by the Co-Editors, and if found suitable for further consideration, will enter peer review performed by independent, anonymous, expert referees. All peer review is double blind. Manuscripts for consideration are to be submitted using the TIES ScholarOne site.
