Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Transportation comes at a high cost for society in terms of environmental pressure. Contrary to other sectors its share in GHG-emissions is increasing rapidly. The oil dependency of the sector is huge which could cause major problems considering the depletion of fossil fuels.  Emissions of pollutants are decreasing but health standards are still exceeded at many places. In many countries between 20-30% per the population experiences noise nuisance, and this fraction is quite stable.

The journal encourages the submission of high-quality and original scientific research papers focusing on options to improve the sector’s environmental performance.  Subjects for papers could be

  • new technologies and their potential, as well as possible market penetrations, including hybrids, electric vehicles, hydrogen, biofuels
  • travel demand management
  • implementation of innovations to green transport and effects
  • changes in environmental pressure and health impacts
  • long term trends, forecast, scenarios
