European Transport Research Review - An Open Access Journal (ETRR) is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen. It  is an online scientific platform in order to disseminate research results in the field of transport. The main scope and mission of the Journal is to provide a forum for the publication of high quality scientific papers in the field of transport in general, and a dissemination medium for new ideas and developments that originate in, or are of interest to, the European transport research community.

Journal's concept and primary characteristics are: first, it is the open access configuration that makes it easily and widely available through the internet with a minimum of constraints and costs; second, it provides focus on issues of special interest to European transport research, its funding bodies and supervising organisations; third, it is clearly oriented towards researchers and practitioners as well.

The Journal is intended for a very broad audience, including:

  • Researchers, professionals and practitioners interested in the different issues and aspects of transport in Europe
  • Technology researchers, professionals and practitioners involved in the design of transport-related services and interactive systems
  • Industrial practitioners interested in the integration of research outcomes in mainstream transport applications and services
  • Policy makers involved in the research and technological development, standardisation, legislation, innovation and technology transfer activities in the context of the transport

The Journal has been established in 2008 by the European Conference of Transport Research Institutes (ECTRI).

    The European Transport Research Review – An Open Access Journal (ETRR) is an online scientific platform aiming at disseminating research results in the field of transport. The main scope and mission of the Journal is to provide a forum for the publication of high quality scientific papers in the field of transport in general, and a dissemination medium for new ideas and developments that originate in, or are of interest to, the European transport research community. The Journal was established by the European Conference of Transport Research Institutes (ECTRI).

    Journal’s concept and primary characteristics are: first, it is the open access configuration that makes it easily and widely available through the internet to all readers with a minimum of constraints and costs; second, it provides focus on issues of special interest to European transport research, its funding bodies and supervising organisations; third, it is clearly oriented towards both researchers and practitioners.

    The Journal considers primarily papers, on both theoretical as well as applied research, whose excellence and content represent an important contribution to transport research in Europe. Papers dealing with theoretical or applied research outside Europe are also encouraged to be submitted for publication, as long as their results are of relevance to European transport concerns, or can contribute to scientific knowledge or best practice transfer between researchers in Europe and their counterparts in other continents.

    Contributors are advised to submit papers that fit at least in one of the areas of interest identified by the Journal. However, the Editorial Board can also consider papers that are not directly related to these areas but are considered of interest or of particular concern to the aims and goals of the Journal. Papers published in the Journal are subjected to peer-review in accordance with standard international practices for scholarly journals. In addition, the Journal will also periodically publish information papers, as well as book and conference reviews regarding transport policy and research in Europe.
