Abstract:

A very broad survey of the literature dealing with human factors in computer systems was performed. Included in the survey were books, journal articles, proceedings papers and institutional publications from the literatures of psychology, human factors, and computer science. From the resulting list, 564 references were selected for inclusion in this bibliography. The references selected deal primarily with the human factors aspects of interactive computer systems, including hardware, software and procedures. The selection of references emphasizes experimental studies, but the bibliography also includes relevant descriptions of dialogue techniques, user requirements analysis methods, guidelines, and a variety of other relevant topics. For each reference, a citation is provided, including sufficient information to allow the reader to obtain a copy, together with a descriptive abstract and a critical annotation. An extensive subject index, as well as an author index and browsing aids, allow the users to locate those articles in which they are interested.
