The Applied Ergonomics Award is for the best paper published in the journal ‘Applied Ergonomics’ in the previous year, as judged by the editors of the journal, as of highest quality in terms of content, presentation and impact.
The award, donated by Elsevier Science, is made on the basis of the quality of the research, development, case or review represented in the paper, the content and quality of the paper itself, the timeliness and importance of its themes and its relevance to the readership and to ergonomics/human factors generally.
