The aim of @ctivites is to publish high quality contribution focused on the understanding of human conducts (e.g. activity as addressed in cultural and historical activity theory and in French ergonomics, situated action, practice-based approaches…) and its relation to analysis, intervention and design of work situations and devices. In ergonomics and work psychology, the notion of activity has been developed for about 50 years, notably in Europe. It has led to the development of a number of researches and has contributed to frame the participation of ergonomists to design processes and to field interventions. Simultaneously, activity theories have expanded in different directions within different communities all over the world (within the Russian psychology community, in Nordic countries, in North and South America), while situated approaches of action and cognition, workplace studies and practice-based approaches have been increasingly discussed.
The diversity of these theoretical and methodological frameworks to analyze human conducts, their particularities, and their relations to intervention and design requires interdisciplinary debates and exchange of ideas. @ctivites is a bi-annual, open access and free journal. The main language is French. As such, all on-line texts are in French. However, the simultaneous publication of the texts in French and English is encouraged. The journal is abstracted in PsycINFO, and listed in the Pascal and Francis databases (CNRS, France).

Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science (TIES)

Co-Editors in Chief: Waldemar Karwowski and Dylan Schmorrow
Publisher: Taylor and Francis

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 of science 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.

WORK: A Journal of Prevention, Assessment & Rehabilitation

Publisher : IOS Press, The Netherlands (
Founding Editor-in-Chief: Karen Jacobs, Ed,D, OTR/L, CPE, FAOTA (

WORK is an interdisciplinary, international journal that publishes high quality peer-reviewed manuscripts covering the entire scope of the occupation of work. The journal’s subtitle has been deliberately laid out: The first goal is the prevention of illness, injury, and disability. When this goal is not achievable, the attention focuses on assessment to design client-centered intervention, rehabilitation, treatment, or controls that use scientific evidence to support best practice. WORK occasionally publishes thematic issues, but in general, the monthly issues cover a wide range of topics such as ergonomic considerations with children, youth and students, the challenges facing an aging workforce, workplace violence, injury management, performing artists, ergonomic product evaluations, and the awareness of the political, cultural, and environmental determinants of health related to work.
Dr. Karen Jacobs, the founding editor, and her editorial board especially encourage the publication of research studies, clinical practice, case study reports, as well as personal narratives and critical reflections of lived work experiences (autoethnographic/autobiographic scholarship), Sounding Board commentaries and Speaking of Research articles which provide the foundation for better understanding research to facilitate knowledge dissemination. Narrative Reflections on Occupational Transitions, a column, is for persons who have successfully transitioned into, between, or out of occupations to tell their stories in a narrative form.
With an internationally renowned editorial board, WORK maintains high standards in the evaluation and publication of manuscripts. All manuscripts are reviewed expeditiously and published in a timely manner. WORK prides itself on being an author-friendly journal. Authors’ guidelines can be found at
