Parasuraman, Masalonis, and Hancock Receive 2001 Ely Human Factors Award for Best Journal Article
Raja Parasuraman, Anthony J. Massalonis, and Peter A. Hancock received the 2001 Jerome H. Ely Human Factors Article Award for the best article published in the previous year's volume of the journal. Human Factors, the Society's technical journal, is published quarterly and covers basic and applied research, quantitative and qualitative approaches to theory, and literature reviews in all areas of the human factors/ergonomics discipline.
The paper, "Fuzzy Signal Detection Theory: Basic Postulates and Formulas for Analyzing Human and Machine Performance" (Volume 42, No. 4, Winter 2000) was selected by a committee of HFES Fellows on the basis of subject matter, relevance, methodological sophistication, clarity of presentation, and overall contribution to the field of human factors. In selecting this paper, the committee recognized the authors' fuzzy signal detection theory as a potential landmark contribution to the field of human factors both in theory and in practice.
