Aims & Scope

Habitation, International Journal for Human Support Research, is designed to meet the needs of an emerging field of study necessitated by the need to develop new technologies to support human activities within controlled environments.

As mankind stretches the limits of environmental understanding in space, under the sea, and other harsh Earth environments, new lessons are leaned that affect our daily lives. Small spacecraft and submarines have used physical/chemical measures to recycle clean air and fresh water, and the principles of these small, unforgiving systems are directly applicable to understanding life support on Earth. As plants are added and systems become larger and more complex, basic concepts of cycling of elements and the importance of biodiversity have direct implications for issues of global warming, the protection of endangered species, and clean water requirements.

Habitation provides a peer-reviewed forum for sharing these concepts among diverse groups. The journal will meet the needs of collaborating scientists, interested in the development of advanced habitation systems for humans living in isolated and extreme environments.

Focus areas include, but are not limited to, the following areas: Monitoring and Control, Human Life Support, and Human Factors and Ergonomics.
