Communications in Transportation Research is indexed in ESCI now!

Communications in Transportation Research (COMMTR) has been indexed in ESCI in July, 2023! This is an impressive achievement for COMMTR only published its first article in 2021. We can expect to see a first IF for COMMTR next year, in the JCR 2024.

Communications in Transportation Research was launched in 2021, with academic support provided by Tsinghua University and China Intelligent Transportation Systems Association. The Editors-in-Chief are Professor Xiaobo Qu, a member of the Academia Europaea from Tsinghua University and Professor Shuai’an Wang from Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The journal mainly publishes high-quality, original research and review articles that are of significant importance to emerging transportation systems, aiming to become an international platform and window for showcasing and exchanging innovative achievements in transportation and related fields, to promote the exchange and development of transportation research between China and the international academic community. It has been indexed in ESCI, Scopus, DOAJ, TRID and other databases. In 2022, it was selected as a high-starting-point new journal project of the “China Science and Technology Journal Excellence Action Plan”.

Communications in Transportation Research publishes peer-reviewed high-quality research representing important advances of significance to emerging transport systems. The mission is to provide fair, fast, and expert peer review to authors and insightful theories, impactful advances, and interesting discoveries to readers. We welcome submissions of significant and general topics, of inter-disciplinary nature (transport, civil, control, artificial intelligence, social science, psychological science, medical services, etc.), of complex and inter-related system of systems, of strong evidence of data strength, of visionary analysis and forecasts towards the way forward, and of potentially implementable and utilizable policies/practices. To be more specific, the scope of expected submissions includes but is not limited to:

  • Interactions among transportation systems and other systems
  • Integrations of emerging technologies with transportation systems
  • Big data analytics in transportation area
  • Advances and discoveries in transportation area
  • Forward-looking judgment for future transportation systems
  • Emerging technologies/products and their impact on transportation
  • Novel transportation modes and associated analytics
  • Governmental initiated transportation policies and impact analysis
  • Mobility as a service
  • Field experiments of emerging transportation technologies
  • Transportation electrification, automation, and connectivity

Communications in Transportation Research is a fully open access journal. It is co-published by Tsinghua University Press and Elsevier, and co-sponsored by the State Key Laboratory of Automotive Safety and Energy (Tsinghua University) and China Intelligent Transportation Systems Association (ITS China). At its discretion, Tsinghua University Press will pay the open access fee for all published papers from 2021 to 2025.
