Invitation:Special Issues of Journal of Ergonomics
We would like to invite you to contribute a review or a full research paper for publication in the Special Issue of
Journal of Ergonomics (JER). These special issue articles will be fully Open Access.

In case you wish to send a contribution for this special issue, Instructions for submission can be found at
http://omicsgroup.org/editorialtracking/ergonomics/SubmitAbstract.php

JER is an Open Access broad-based journal. It was founded on two key tenets: 1) to publish the most exciting research with respect to the subjects of Journal of Ergonomics and 2) to provide a rapid turn-around time regarding reviewing and publishing, and to disseminate the articles freely for research, teaching and reference purposes..

JER strongly supports the Open Access initiative. Abstracts and full texts (HTML, PDF, XML format Digital Article and Audio Version) of all articles published by JER are freely accessible to everyone immediately after publication. JER-Open Access gives a worldwide audience, larger than that of any subscription-based journal, barrier-free access to research on Journal of Ergonomics . Furthermore, JER offers increased convenience, reach, and retrieval power, thus improving the visibility and impact of its published work. JER- Open Access eliminates the need for permissions to reproduce and distribute content, which increases the availability of these key resources. JER and OMICS Publishing Group are ardent about Open Access and strongly believe that removing barriers to accessing research published online will greatly aid to the progress of research within scientific and technical disciplines.

All published articles will be assigned DOI provided by CrossRef and will be indexed by various services. All published articles are deposited in DOAJ, EBSCO, INDEX COPERNICUS, Scientific Commons and Google Scholar. Partial published articles are deposited in PubMed. Published articles will be archived online by the OMICS Publishing Group providing the international scientific community with permanent access to individual papers. Please, visit our website for further information regarding indexing and archiving (http://www.omicsgroup.org/journals/indexingJER.php).

All works published by OMICS Publishing Group are under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License. This permits anyone to copy, distribute, transmit and adapt the work, provided the original work and source is appropriately cited. JER supports the Bethesda Statement on Open Access Publishing.

In case you need any further information, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thank you very much in advance for your kind support and co-operation.

We are looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards,
