Instructions for authors and editing rules of the Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea (updated Sep 11 2017)

The Ergonomics Society of Korea and policy

The Ergonomics Society of Korea (ESK) was founded in 1982 and is the largest nonprofit association for ergonomics professionals in Korea, with more than 2,000 members. The purpose of the society is to contribute to development, distribution, and application of ergonomics technology for overall human and social well-being. The society focuses on the role of humans in a complex system, the design of process, procedures, software, products, equipment and facilities for human use, and the development of environments for accessibility, comfort, safety and well-being. The mission of the society is to promote the goals by supporting communications among interdisciplinary fields through online journals, websites, technical meetings and conferences.

Article types

The following types of articles may be submitted: Research articles deal with previously unpublished original research that is experimental (field or laboratory based), methodological, or theoretical in nature. These articles report a single experiment, concept or modeling that is fully developed and includes a statistical analysis. Application articles deal with previously unpublished original research that applies ergonomics disciplines to development of software, process, procedures, products, facilities, and human centered systems or environments. Technical articles deal with previously unpublished illustration of new technologies, a synthesis of published work on a special topic, a review of technology trend, and a research report. Suitably revised papers documented in the proceedings of the ESK conferences may be submitted for consideration as a technical article, if the chair-person of the presentation recommends them for publication.



Article peer review process

J Ergon Soc Korea is a peer refereed journal. All the articles should be published through a totally double-blind review by two referees. Any information on authors or referees should not be revealed to each other side during the review process. It takes about 4-5 weeks for first review.

After the two referees agree to accept an article it may proceed to the publishing process. If the two referees disagree to accept, the article is returned to the author. Referees may ask the author to revise or re-review for the revised article. Accepted and timely revised articles (within 1 year) are often published within 2 to 4 weeks. All the submissions and reviews must be processed through the online submission and review system of the website of J Ergon Soc Korea
(http://jesk.or.kr).
