The Journal of Human Performance in Extreme Environments is a peer-reviewed journal that accepts empirical and theoretical articles with relevance to human performance in extreme environments, defined as settings that possess extraordinary technological, social, and physical components that require significant human adaptation for successful interaction and performance. The publication reaches researchers, practitioners, and professionals from industry, the armed forces, and academic institutions from around the world who specialize in issues related to extreme environments.

In 2012, the journal became an Open Access publication so as to better serve readers beyond the academy and in developing nations. Open Access publication is currently made possible by publication support from Purdue University, so the journal is free to publish in as well as read. As a born-digital publication, the journal encourages the publication of multimedia (e.g., audio, video, computer simulation animations) as well as text and static images.
