Cognition, Technology and Work. Focus: Cognition, Technology & Work focuses on the practical issues of human interaction with technology within the context of work and, in particular, how human cognition affects, and is affected by, work and working conditions. The aim is to publish research that normally resides on the borderline between people, technology, and organisations. Including how people use information technology, how experience and expertise develop through work, and how incidents and accidents are due to the interaction between individual, technical and organisational factors. The target is thus the study of people at work from a cognitive systems engineering and socio-technical systems perspective. The most relevant working contexts of interest to CTW are those where the impact of modern technologies on people at work is particularly important for the users involved as well as for the effects on the environment and plants. Modern society has come to depend on the safe and efficient functioning of a multitude of technological systems as diverse as industrial production, transportation, communication, supply of energy, information and materials, health and finance. In particular, the working contexts where such impact is most relevant are, amongst others: · aviation, rail, maritime and road systems · medical and hospital environments · energy production and nuclear power plants · household and social contexts · plus other contexts where popular technology is being constantly utilised for everyday activities. The journal will also study how “operators” interact with technologies, such as pilots, drivers, plant and traffic controllers, maintenance engineers, doctors, and nurses, etc. while also including the users affected by the systems, such as passengers, patients and people in general.
Universal Access in the Information Society. This journal addresses the accessibility, usability, and, ultimately, acceptability of Information Society Technologies by anyone, anywhere, at anytime, and through any media and device. Universal Access in the Information Society (UAIS) focuses on theoretical, methodological, and empirical research, of both a technological and non-technological nature, that addresses equitable access and active participation of potentially all citizens in the information society. It features papers that report on theories, methods, tools, empirical results, reviews, case studies, and best-practice examples.
