Journal of Transportation Safety & Security

JTSS Recently Indexed in Web of Science

The Journal of Transportation Safety & Security (JTSS) is indexed in the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), which is one of the seven citation databases that comprise the Web of Science. This is a significant milestone in the journal’s development. Papers published in JTSS now count toward tenure and will be more widely distributed and cited.

Editor-in-Chief Dr. Stephen H. Richards said, “Great news…and I must acknowledge and thank all those involved with JTSS, from the journal’s start-up just a few years ago to this most recent milestone of recognition, for their vision, dedication, and hard work. I want to also acknowledge the role of the USDOT’s University Transportation Centers Program, which provided a framework for the journal’s inception and growth, and gave JTSS early recognition as one of the UTC Program Points of Pride in 2009.”

Besides SSCI, JTSS is abstracted/indexed in: EBSCOhost Online Research Databases; Elsevier Scopus; and TRID: Transportation Research Information Services & International Transportation Research Documentation Database.

Ms. Lissa Gay, University of Tennessee, Managing Editor

An official journal of the Southeastern Transportation Center in partnership with Beijing Jiaotong University

JTSS provides a discussion forum for the exchange of academic ideas, data, and integrated transportation safety solutions developed through engineering research in multimodal transportation safety arenas, which encompass the highway, transit, ridesharing, pedestrian, and bicycle modes, as well as rail, water, and aviation safety issues.
Topics covered include comprehensive transportation safety aspects of

  • Infrastructure design
  • Driver behavior and human factors
  • Traffic control and traffic operations
  • Crash data collection and analyses
  • Safety information and communication systems
  • Advanced and emerging vehicle and network technologies
  • Safety policy and planning
  • Security issues of transportation systems and networks
  • Emergency and incident planning and response

The journal’s mission is to disseminate advanced research results and engineering experience to educators, researchers, practitioners and policy makers to enhance transportation safety with comprehensive and integrated solutions.

Journal of Intelligent Transportation Systems

Dr. Asad J. Khattak, University of Tennessee, Editor in Chief

The Journal of Intelligent Transportation Systems is devoted to scholarly research on the development, planning, management, operation and evaluation of intelligent transportation systems. Intelligent transportation systems are innovative solutions that address contemporary transportation problems. They are characterized by information, dynamic feedback and automation that allow people and goods to move efficiently. They encompass the full scope of information technologies used in transportation, including control, computation and communication, as well as the algorithms, databases, models and human interfaces. The emergence of these technologies as a new pathway for transportation is relatively new.

Journal of Public Transportation

Dr. Joel R. Volinski, University of South Florida, Editor

The Journal of Public Transportation is a quarterly, international journal containing original research and case studies associated with various forms of public transportation and related transportation and policy issues. Topics are approached from a variety of academic disciplines, including economics, engineering, planning, and others, and include policy, methodological, technological, and financial aspects. Emphasis is placed on the identification of innovative solutions to transportation problems.

Accident Analysis & Prevention

Dr. Mohamed Abdel-Aty, University of South Florida

Accident Analysis & Prevention provides wide coverage of the general areas relating to accidental injury and damage, including the pre-injury and immediate post-injury phases. Published papers deal with medical, legal, economic, educational, behavioral, theoretical or empirical aspects of transportation accidents, as well as with accidents at other sites. Selected topics within the scope of the Journal may include: studies of human, environmental and vehicular factors influencing the occurrence, type and severity of accidents and injury; the design, implementation and evaluation of countermeasures; biomechanics of impact and human tolerance limits to injury; modelling and statistical analysis of accident data; policy, planning and decision-making in safety.
