How to publish in this journal


The Journal seeks to explore the frontiers of ever expanding HFE discipline by focusing on HFE contributions to contemporary society in the context of human interactions with technology, engineering, economics and business, as well as consideration of safety and security, human ecology, sustainability, service systems, urbanization, communication, education, and social and government policies. TIES also promotes a large scale system-of-system perspective of HFE, and discusses its implications for the development of the human-centered global society. The Journal is proactive in its mission to develop a unique HFE discipline, and seeks to define and promote theories of HFE as distinct and inherently valuable for the global knowledge community, including human factors scientists and safety engineers, ergonomists, industrial designers, industrial engineers, systems engineers, design engineers, cognitive and organizational psychologists, health care professionals, business analysts, and human-computer interaction and user experience specialists and practioners. Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science emphasizes new knowledge, publishing original, high-quality, peer-reviewed papers as well as commissioned reviews and peer-reviewed commentaries. Topics include both qualitative and quantitative methodological frameworks and HFE theories. The Journal presents papers that discuss principles of the investigative process in research, social and historical issues, and science of science perspectives on HFE. Papers that examine the discipline itself, including bibliographical analyses of classic papers, are also published. Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

External Cites per Doc 
Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
