    Aims and Scope

    Close

    Focus: Cognition, Technology & Work focuses on the practical issues of human interaction with technology within the context of work and, in particular, how human cognition affects, and is affected by, work and working conditions.

    The aim is to publish research that normally resides on the borderline between people, technology, and organisations. Including how people use information technology, how experience and expertise develop through work, and how incidents and accidents are due to the interaction between individual, technical and organisational factors.

    The target is thus the study of people at work from a cognitive systems engineering and socio-technical systems perspective.

    The most relevant working contexts of interest to CTW are those where the impact of modern technologies on people at work is particularly important for the users involved as well as for the effects on the environment and plants. Modern society has come to depend on the safe and efficient functioning of a multitude of technological systems as diverse as industrial production, transportation, communication, supply of energy, information and materials, health and finance. In particular, the working contexts where such impact is most relevant are, amongst others:

    ·         aviation, rail, maritime and road systems

    ·         medical and hospital environments

    ·         energy production and nuclear power plants

    ·         household and social contexts

    ·         plus other contexts where popular technology is being constantly utilised for everyday activities.

    The journal will  also study how “operators” interact with technologies, such as pilots, drivers, plant and traffic controllers, maintenance engineers, doctors, and nurses, etc. while also including the users affected by the systems, such as passengers, patients and people in general.

    Motivation: Human work has irreversibly become work with technology and the nature of work has changed to make the role of human cognition more important. In the most affected environments, the human component is relevant both for the interactions of humans with control systems and for the effects that these interactions may have on the general public at large.

    People who work with technology are tightly coupled with it and must come to terms with the complexity of the socio-technical environment in order to ensure that their work is effective, safe and efficient.

    Consequently, understanding and analysing the joint functioning of people and socio-technical development, operation and maintenance systems, is the first key motivation of the studies proposed by CTW. This requires a multi-disciplinary approach, which combines the analysis of individuals with the study of technology and organisations.

    The second relevant motivation of CTW is that methods and methodologies proposed and applied in field studies must be able to be reproduced and implemented by readers in order to be really effective and useful. Therefore, the peculiarity of combining consolidated theoretical frameworks, with relevant implementations in real working contexts, and the assessment of results is essential for reaching the impact necessary to maintain the Journal at the edge of applied research and practical implementation that represent the major aim of CTW.

He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.
