About the Journal

Physical Ergonomics

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

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.

Sound ergonomics

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

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

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.

Ergonomics softwares

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

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 health and safety

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

Industrial ergonomics is thedesign 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 work place

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 disorders

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.

User experience design

User experience design  is the process of enhancing user satisfaction by improving the usability, accessibility, and pleasure provided in the interaction between the user and the product.

Human factors

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

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.

*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
