About This Journal

JHPEE is the journal of the Society for Human Performance in Extreme Environments (http://www.hpee.org/) and was first published in 1996. Originally serving as a newsletter for the society, the Journal reprinted relevant research from all over the field, as well as providing timely information on upcoming publications and conferences. With volume 5 in October 2000, however, the Journal narrowed its focus and began to publish original research articles and notes from the field.

In 2012, after several years of disrupted publication, 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. No author fees are charged.
