How to publish in this journal


The International Journal of Occupational Safety and Ergonomics (JOSE) is a refereed interdisciplinary quarterly journal. Published since 1995, its paramount aim has always been to create a platform for presenting results of research in ergonomics and workplace health promotion relevant for the diverse, yet increasingly globalizing world. Whereas social and economic problems and researchers' modus operandi in various countries and climates are similar, legislation, safety and management culture are not. We are interested in showing how the same problems are studied and solved in different parts of the world and how the same methods can produce different results. Comparing those problems and views, in their diversity, helps perceive them in a wider context, in a global perspective. Our mission involves both looking at each problem in its cultural, social and economic contexts and approaching it from the broad perspective of various fields. Greater awareness follows, with authors able to connect with fellow researchers in other fields, who work on the same problems. Even though the principal objective of JOSE is to publish research, we do not perceive this aim as limited to significant original contributions to knowledge; we are also interested in contributions that prove well-known solutions can be used in practice. Everything that can make work easier and workplace health better is worthy of dissemination. Join the conversation about this journal

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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.
