Ergonomics, synonymously known as Human Factor (HF) is a multidisciplinary science that explains the relationship among the humans, systems and the environment surrounding it. It is primarily used in designing equipments that would help human fighting the disability effectively.

The Journal of Ergonomics includes a wide range of fields in its discipline to create a platform for the authors to make their contribution towards the journal and the editorial office promises a peer review process for the submitted manuscripts for the quality of publishing. The Journal of Ergonomics is one of the best Open Access journals of Scholarly publishing.

Journal of Ergonomics is an Open Access journal and aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in anthropometry, biomechanics, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, industrial design, information design, kinesiology, physiology, psychology,working ergonomics and making them freely available through online without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide.

The journal is using Editorial Manager System for quality in peer review. Editorial Manager System is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Review processing is performed by the Editorial Board Members of the Journal of Ergonomics or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.
