Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Air transport is very important, but so is air quality. Creating a balance requires several considerations as regards mechanization and policy. Whilst countries now struggle to adjust to the energy crisis particularly in the EU, the different contributors to degradation of our atmospheric conditions have not been adequately accounted for. One leading sector is the transport sector with specific emphasis on air transport systems. This Special Issue reinforces the need for academics and practitioners alike to contribute to knowledge on the anthropogenic consequences of air transport with special references to the policy perspectives. Considering the drive for the generation of renewable forms of energy and transport, modelling of pollutant emission sources, and comparative discourse on what contributes most amongst others, we invite you to contribute articles to this Special Issue. Studies that report on specific countries as well as groups of regions or countries are welcomed. Solicited contributions include, but are not limited to, environmental degradation impacts of energy used in air transportation, transport modelling, sectoral impact of air transport and ecological considerations. Articles that emphasize theoretical arguments and impact evaluation as well as general equilibrium modelling of overall impact are also encouraged.

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
