Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • Epistemology
  • Social science

Sidney Dekker spends much of his time researching Human error, Computer security, Accountability, Risk analysis and Management. Human error overlaps with fields such as Artificial intelligence, Operations research, Context, Hindsight bias and Accident in his research. His work deals with themes such as Ordination, Construct, Industrial and organizational psychology and Function allocation, which intersect with Computer security.

His research on Accountability also deals with topics like

  • Culpability which is related to area like Index and Nothing,
  • Harm and related Blame, Property, Epistemology, Complex system and Systems thinking. His studies deal with areas such as Resilience, Guideline adherence, Adaptation and Rule following as well as Risk analysis. His research integrates issues of Unexpected events, Liability, Outsourcing, Secrecy and Public administration in his study of Management.

His most cited work include:

  • The Field Guide to Understanding 'Human Error' (448 citations)
  • The effects of job insecurity on psychological health and withdrawal: A longitudinal study (400 citations)
  • Drift into Failure: From Hunting Broken Components to Understanding Complex Systems (375 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Human error, Aviation, Public relations, Risk analysis and Operations research. He integrates many fields, such as Human error and engineering, in his works. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Computer security, Cockpit and Simulation.

As part of his studies on Cockpit, Sidney Dekker often connects relevant areas like Crew resource management. The Public relations study combines topics in areas such as Safety culture, Politics and Blame. His Operations research study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Automation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Human error (21.11%)
  • Aviation (12.80%)
  • Public relations (12.80%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Human error (21.11%)
  • Public relations (12.80%)
  • Resilience engineering (4.50%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Sidney Dekker mainly investigates Human error, Public relations, Resilience engineering, Risk analysis and Engineering ethics. His Human error investigation overlaps with other areas such as Systems thinking, Focus, Front line, Constructed language and Session. His Systems thinking research includes elements of Epistemology, Framing and Human–computer interaction.

His work carried out in the field of Public relations brings together such families of science as Safety culture, Bureaucracy, Politics, Restorative justice and Thematic analysis. His Resilience engineering research integrates issues from Theme, Management science and Futures studies. His Risk analysis study incorporates themes from Margin, Sphere of influence, Session and Balance.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Resilience Engineering: Chronicling the Emergence of Confused Consensus (60 citations)
  • Bureaucracy, influence and beliefs: A literature review of the factors shaping the role of a safety professional (37 citations)
  • The Safety Anarchist: Relying on human expertise and innovation, reducing bureaucracy and compliance (25 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • Epistemology
  • Social science

His scientific interests lie mostly in Public relations, Occupational safety and health, Liability, Resilience engineering and Zero. Sidney Dekker interconnects Health care, Thematic analysis and Bureaucracy, Politics in the investigation of issues within Public relations. In his research, Unintended consequences, Public economics, Audit and Safety management systems is intimately related to Accountability, which falls under the overarching field of Liability.

His Resilience engineering research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Social science, Theme, Management science and Engineering ethics. Sidney Dekker usually deals with Law and limits it to topics linked to Enlightenment and Control and Law and economics. His study deals with a combination of Product and Human error.
