Ergonomics journals and journals related to the field of ergonomics were ranked according to a method developed by Dul and Karwowski (2004) to create the Ergonomics Journal List 2005 (EJL2005). The EJL2005 was compared with the EJL2004. The rankings of the best ergonomics journals in EJL2005 were compared with the rankings based on perceived journal quality from a survey among 130 certified European ergonomists. The results show that in the EJL2005, the six primary ergonomics journals are the same as in the EJL2004, although some journals changed position. Eleven new journals showed up in the list of 61 related journals (non-ergonomics journals that regularly publish ergonomics articles). The total number of ergonomics articles in these journals increased from 605 in the EJL2004 to 623 in the EJL2005. There was a high congruence between the ranking of ergonomics journals in the EJL2005 and rankings based on perceived journal quality (Pearson r = 0.90).,
