Transportation Research Part A Policy and Practice Journal Impact Factor & Information

Publisher: Elsevier

Journal description

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. Part A's aims and scope are complementary to Transportation Research Part B: Methodological, Part C: Emerging Technologies and Part D: Transport and Environment. The complete set forms the most cohesive and comprehensive reference of current research in transportation science. Selected abstracts from the Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice are available in TR Update, the Elsevier Science transportation newsletter.
