The French journal on traffic and transport safety RTS – Recherche Transports Sécurité
is now published by Springer. RTS is the official journal of the French institute of science and technology for transport, development and networks IFSTTAR (Institut français des sciences et technologies des transports, de l'aménagement et des réseaux) and was formerly published by Lavoisier.
Published quarterly, RTS – Recherche Transports Sécurité
aims to consolidate its position as the leading information resource in the field of transport and traffic. RTS is an important platform for publishing papers on basic and applied research as well as articles with a practical focus. Authors can now submit papers through an electronic manuscript system and can follow the status of their publication at http://www.editorialmanager.com/rtse/.
This cooperation between Springer and IFFSTAR extends their existing partnership set up in 2009, when Springer founded the ETRR – European Transport Research Review
, an IFFSTAR journal published in English. RTS
will benefit greatly from Springer’s well-networked distribution channels, enabling the journal to increase its readership and enhance its visibility in the international French-speaking research community.
IFSTTAR is a public scientific and technical research establishment. It reports to both the French Ministry of Environment and Transport and the Ministry of Research. IFSTTAR was formed by the merger of the state-run research institute for transport and traffic safety INRETS and the central bridge and road construction institute LCPC.
