Taylor & Francis is delighted to announce the publication of an outstanding new reference work, the
International Encyclopedia of Ergonomics and Human Factors edited by Waldemar Karwowski. It is the
first encyclopedia in the field and provides a comprehensive and authoritative compendium of current
knowledge on ergonomics and human factors and a definitive and powerful resource. It also gives specific
information on concepts and tools unique to ergonomics.
It consists of approximately 500 entries running to about 2016 pages, published in three volumes and on
CD-ROM. The entries are organized alphabetically and written in such a way that the non-expert will get a
clear and simple outline of the topic as well as some precise practical information (such as a table of
normative anthropometric data). It also includes a bibliography structured by theme.
Technical terms are defined (where possible) within entries as well as in a glossary; so both students and
professionals should find this invaluable, whether they have ergonomics, engineering, computing or
psychology backgrounds. Experts and researchers should also find it an excellent source of information
on areas beyond the range of their direct interests.
Key Features:
* The definitive source of information in the field of ergonomics and human factors
* A unique source of information on this interdisciplinary field
* Contributions from leading contributors in the area
* International board of editors

"`This work may become the source text for ergonomists, and for those seeking to integrate ergonomics
thinking into theor own endeavours.'"
