Ergonomics in Design (EID) focuses on how human factors/ergonomics (HF/E) and usability research and methods are applied in the design, development, prototyping, test and evaluation, training, and manufacturing processes of products, systems, tools, and environments to improve their safety and usability.

EID welcomes up-to-date demonstrations of the importance of HF/E principles in design and implementation, in the form of features articles, case studies, anecdotes, debates, and interviews. Guidelines for authors may be found at http://www.hfes.org/Publications/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductId=36.
