How to publish in this journal


Prior to the inception of the Journal of Transportation Safety & Security (JTSS), there were limited outlets for publishing research in the areas of comprehensive transportation safety or transportation security. JTSS fills that gap by emphasizing safety issues of multimodal transportation, including highway, transit, ride-sharing, pedestrian and bicycle modes as well as rail, water and aviation. The journal's aim 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. 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. The journal is supported and directed by an international editorial board of renowned experts in all modes transportation safety. Relevant topics 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 Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
