Impact Factor: 1.38*
The Journal of Ergonomics is one of the best Open Access journals of Scholarly publishing and aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in occupational health, musculoskeletal disorders, driver safety, anthropometry, biomechanics, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, industrial design, information design, kinesiology, physiology, psychology, working ergonomics and making them freely available through online without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide.
Ergonomics Journals are at higher echelons that enhance the intelligence and information dissemination on topics closely related to ergonomics. They provide a unique forum dedicated to scientists to express their research articles, review articles, case reports and short communications on an array of ergonomics research.
The Ergonomics Peer Reviewed Journals are proficiently supported by universally prominent Editorial Board members. Ergonomics journal impact factor is mainly calculated based on the number of articles that undergo a double blind peer review process by competent Editorial Board so as to ensure excellence, essence of the work and number of citations received for the same published articles. Abstracts and full texts of all articles published by Ergonomics Open Access Journals are freely accessible to everyone immediately after publication.

Physical ergonomics is concerned with human anatomical, anthropometric, physiological and biomechanical characteristics as they relate to physical activity.Physical ergonomics is one of three aspects of ergonomics: physical, cognitive and organizational.
Occupational Ergonomics is a specialty region of ergonomics which tries to make work programs and procedures within specific professions more reactive to the physical, cognitive, and psychocultural traits of employees.
The applied science of equipment design, as for the workplace, intended to maximize productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort.Sound ergonomics is one of the fields provides work site assessments and the development of ergonomic programs for diagnostic imaging professionals.
Dental Ergonomics is an applied science concerned with designing and arranging things people use so that the people can do work most efficiently and comfortably. In dental ergonomic tools, equipments, work stations and tasks to fit the work so that they have a positive impact on dentists throughout their professional lifespan.
Applied Ergonomics is aimed at ergonomists and all those interested in applying ergonomics/human factors in the design, planning and management of technical and social systems at work or leisure.It include ergonomists, designers, industrial engineers, health and safety specialists, systems engineers, design engineers, organizational psychologists, occupational health specialists and human-computer interaction specialists.
Software ergonomics is a subcategory of ergonomics that concerns the software design, rather than the hardware design, of systems. Software ergonomics includes the determination of user needs, interface design, user support and usability testing
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are injuries or pain in the body's joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck and back. MSDs are degenerative diseases and inflammatory conditions that cause pain and impair normal activities
Occupational safety and health (OSH) also commonly referred to as occupational health and safety (OHS) or workplace health and safety (WHS) is an area concerned with the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. The goals of occupational safety and health programs include to foster a safe and healthy work environment.OSH may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, and many others who might be affected by the workplace environment
Industrial ergonomics is the design and use of equipment and systems that do not damage industrial workers' health or it can also be explained as the study of adapting job tasks to human abilities and natural body movements
Safety at workplace is an alternative field of seeing ergonomics as by preventing injury and illness to employees and volunteers in the workplace will indirectly increase the efficacy and lifestyle of the workers
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs) include all musculoskeletal disorders that are induced or aggravated by work and the circumstances of its performance.a group of painful disorders of muscles, tendons, and nerves. Carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, thoracic outlet syndrome, and tension neck syndrome.
In terms of ergonomics is known as comfort design, functional design, and user-friendly systems, is the practice of designing products, systems or processes to take proper account of the interaction between them and the people who use them.
Driver Safety guidance on a range of issues associated with driving, including, car selection, working from the car, seat adjustment and assessing and managing risk. These can be used by organisations to help manage and minimise the risk of driving-related musculoskeletal troubles.
OMICS Group International world’s leading Open Access publishers and scientific event organizer feel proud to welcome the researchers and contributors across the globe to its premier 4th International Conference and Exhibition on Occupational Health & Safety (Occupational Health-2015) to be held during August 24-25, 2015 at Toronto, Canada.
OMICS International Organises 1000+ Conferences every year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 50000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members
*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If X is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and Y is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2013 than, impact factor = X/Y
