A serious problem associated with training and research applications of both driving and flight simulators is the provocation of illness symptoms and after effects in human subjects. In spite of its frequency and severity, human factors research attention to the problem of simualtor sickness has been somewhat scant. However, documentation of a number of instances of simulator-induced sickness appears in journal articles, technical reports, and memoranda. Several other publications have specifically addressed the syptomatology andor the etiology of the problem, while a few papers have described laboratory or field studies. This report includes bibliographic listings and abstracts for those references which have direct mention of, specifically with simulator sickness and does not attempt to represent the plethora of associated articles on motion sickness and human perception. The majority of the bibliography is comprised of incidence reports, field surveys, technical memorana on specific simulators, reports on countermeasures, and research studies on simulator design aspects, procedural and operational aspects, and subject individual differences such as experience level and perceptual style. It is intended to provide the researcher or simulator user with an up-to-date source of background representing the state of knowledge on simulator sickness.
