Transportation Research Paper
Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment publishes original research and review articles on the environmental impacts of transportation, policy responses to those impacts, and their implications for the design, planning, and management of transportation systems. It covers all aspects of the interaction between transportation and the environment, from localized to global impacts. All impacts are considered, including impacts on travel behavior, air quality, ecosystems, global climate, public health, land use, economic development, and quality of life.
The journal invites submissions of research papers on all modes of transportation. This includes maritime and air transportation as well as all modes of ground transportation. Papers dealing with sustainability and resilience of the transportation system and its infrastructure as well as the impacts of a changing climate on cities, regions, and networks are welcomed.
The emphasis of the journal is on empirical findings and policy responses of a regulatory, planning, technical or fiscal nature. Articles are primarily policy-driven and should be relevant and applied as well as being accessible to readers from a wide range of disciplines. There are no disciplinary boundaries to work considered and submissions of an interdisciplinary nature are welcomed. Equally, the journal is fully international in its orientation and invites contributions from economically developing, as well as more economically advanced, countries. Submissions should not be primarily modeling exercises but have a clear policy-driven scope that delves into impacts and solutions to improve environmental outcomes.
Part D's aims and scope are complementary to other journals in the Transportation Research series. This includes Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice, Part B: Methodological and Part C: Emerging Technologies, Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review, and Part F: Traffic Psychology and Behaviour. The complete set forms the most cohesive and comprehensive reference of current research in transportation science. Submissions more appropriate for other journals in the series will not be accepted.Hide full Aims & Scope
Transportation Research: Part A contains papers of general interest in all passenger and freight transportation modes: policy analysis, formulation and evaluation; planning; interaction with the political, socioeconomic and physical environment; design, management and evaluation of transportation systems. Topics are approached from any discipline or perspective: economics, engineering, sociology, psychology, etc. Case studies, survey and expository papers are included, as are articles which contribute to unification of the field, or to an understanding of the comparative aspects of different systems. Papers which assess the scope for technological innovation within a social or political framework are also published. The journal is international, and places equal emphasis on the problems of industrialized and non-industrialized regions.
