The field of human factors focuses on the human, the interaction of humans and machines and humans and computers, whether people serve as operators, maintainers or users in the system. The field advocates systematic use of such knowledge to achieve compatibility in the design of interactive systems of people, machines and environments to ensure their effectiveness, safety and ease of performance. IJHFMS highlights development and use of computer simulations and computational algorithms to advance knowledge and understanding of the field.
Topics covered include
- Human factors theory as related to computational models of human performance, interaction with virtual environments
- Simulator-based evaluations of human factors issues
- Computer simulation of human behaviour/performance
- Digital human modelling and simulation
- Developments in simulation and virtual environments to address human factors/ergonomics issues
- Human performance modelling
- Simulation of physiological behaviour, measures, predictions
IJHFMS aims to promote knowledge and understanding of human factors systems, and particularly the advancement of that field using computational methods. It seeks to initiate and support international activities and cooperation in this field. The following principal goals reflect the journal mission:
- To advance the science of human factors
- To advance the science of computational methods and numerical simulation in the area of human factors
- To increase the practice of digital human modelling in human factors
- To enhance the contribution of the human factors discipline in the design of work systems globally
IJHFMS is an archival record of original technical publications. The intent is to provide state of the art knowledge to professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers; in human factors and ergonomics, engineering, design, animation, and health; covering all aspects of modelling and simulation of human factors.
IJHFMS publishes peer reviewed original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, selected conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to related human factors modelling and simulation issues are periodically arranged by the editor.
