Abstract: A method for selecting and rating scientific and professional
journals representing the discipline of ergonomics and human factors is
proposed. The method is based upon the journal list, impact factors and
citations provided by the Institute of Scientific Information (ISI), and the
journal list published in the Ergonomics Abstracts. Three groups of journals
were distinguished. The,ergonomics journals' focus exclusively on ergonomics
and human factors. The 'related journals' focus on other disciplines than
ergonomics and human factors, but regularly publish ergonomics/human factors
papers. The 'basic journals' focus on other technical, medical or social
sciences than ergonomics, but are important for the development of
ergonomics/human factors. Journal quality was rated using a maximum of four
categories: top quality (A-level), high quality (B-level), good quality
(C-level)) and professional (P-level). The above methods were applied to
develop the Ergonomics Journal List 2004. A total of 25 'ergonomics
journals', 58 'related journals' and 142 'basic journals' were classified.
