Focus and Scope
Aims and Scope
The main scope of the journal is to publish original research articles in the wide field of transportation, logistics and vehicle engineering, e.g. in the field of modeling and measuring complex systems, and also relating to environmental and urban problems just as much as the economic and social questions of transport (e.g.: travel or driver behavior). Handling and modeling of large networks, the analysis of vehicles and engines, and the related manufacture and repair processes are also considered. Special attention is paid to the future emerging technologies (autonomous driving and vehicles; electro mobility) within the transport sector, as well as intelligent transport systems and information and communication technologies.
Abstracting and Indexing
The journal is abstracted by several international databases, see the main page.
We implement a strict peer reviewing process and use Crossref/iThenticate for plagarism checking. In ethical issues the COPE guidelines are followed. The peer reviewing and editing process is short, the publication may appear in average within 3-4 months in the journal’s “Online First” page after submission of the manuscript.
The journal is electronically published four times per year. This is a diamond open access journal: publishing and downloading articles are both free of charge. The journal does not charge authors any article processing charges (APCs), submission, or publication fees. Users have the right to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full text of these articles.
The journal is recommended to researchers, faculty professors, and PhD students active in its field.
