Featured Collection: Developing Mobility as a Service – User, operator and governance perspectives

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) aims to fulfill individuals' mobility needs in a sustainable way by combining different transport services, potentially offering a path for breaking out of individual and societal car dependence. MaaS concepts emerge across the world with research accumulating at a rapid pace. Previous research considered different perspectives on MaaS conceptualization and implementation, understanding roles and responsibilities of various stakeholders, and anticipating desired and undesired implications for transport systems and society at large. This article collection aims to provide additional breadth and depth with studies across Europe and the world using diverse methodological approaches, spanning from modelling to business model analysis, in order to unfold the full complexity of dynamic innovation and implementation processes.

Read as well the blog post from the Guest Editors Heikki Liimatainen and Milos Mladenovic who give further insights on the idea of the collection here.

Coming Soon – ETC 2021 collection

European Transport Research Review will publish selected papers from the European Transport Conference (ETC) 2021 as a topical collection.

ETC is the annual conference of the Association for European Transport (AET), attracting transport policy makers, practitioners and researchers from all over Europe and beyond. ETC offers in-depth presentations on policy issues, best practice and research findings across the broad spectrum of transport.

The range of topics with the multi-seminar approach makes ETC unique among transport conferences and it has established itself as the premier event of its type.
As transport policy makers, practitioners and researchers throughout Europe respond to the challenges of climate change, social and demographic change, economic growth, equality issues, and the impacts of future technology such as connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), ETC provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of robust and affordable responses.

Aims and scope

European Transport Research Review (ETRR) is a peer-reviewed open access journal publishing original high-quality scholarly research and developments in areas related to transportation science, technologies, policy and practice. Established in 2008 by the European Conference of Transport Research Institutes (ECTRI), the Journal provides researchers and practitioners around the world with an authoritative forum for the dissemination and critical discussion of new ideas and methodologies that originate in, or are of special interest to, the European transport research community. The journal is unique in its field, as it covers all modes of transport and addresses both the engineering and the social science perspective, offering a truly multidisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners, engineers and policymakers. ETRR is aimed at a readership including researchers, practitioners in the design and operation of transportation systems, and policymakers at the international, national, regional and local levels.

ETRR covers the following main areas of interest:

  • Mobility and travel behavior
  • Transportation safety and security
  • Transportation economics
  • Transportation planning and policy
  • Human factors in transportation
  • Traffic and demand management
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
  • Freight transport and logistics
  • Air and waterway transport
  • Transportation impacts of emerging vehicle technologies
  • Environmental issues in transportation and climate change
  • Equity, social and health issues related to transport

Examples of particular topics of interest are: urban logistics, intermodal transport systems, transitions towards sustainable transport, accessibility and equity analysis, technologies for improving network and vehicle efficiency, advances in integrated transport systems and intermodal transportation, traffic safety analysis, traffic flo w theory and modeling, IT technologies for transport data collection and analysis, strategies for vehicle-to-vehicle communications and the transport impacts and indirect impacts of autonomous vehicles. The Journal encourages thematic collections of related articles from major European transport research projects, major conferences such as the TRA, ETC and WCTR, and international networks such as NECTAR.

ETRR aims to disseminate and discuss new ideas and methodologies that originate in, or are of special interest to, the European transport research community. While its focus is on Europe, it will be of interest to anyone wishing to learn from European experience or to develop new applications for European practice. We consider papers on non-European case studies if the relevance for the European transportation research field is sufficiently made clear.
