/PRNewswire/ --
Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of the
new journal
Economics of Transportation
.
As the official journal of the International Transportation Economics Association
(ITEA),
Economics of Transportation
welcomes both theoretical and applied
papers that make important contributions to transportation economics. The
journal also publishes papers that research the interaction between
transportation and other economic activities; papers that seek to promote
cross fertilization with other fields of economics including labor, trade, urban
economics, and industrial organization; and substantive papers on timely policy
issues relating to transportation.
"There is a clear demand for a strong journal that is very visible among the
economics journals and that can be a well recognized outlet for the best papers
in the field of transportation economics," commented Professor Erik Verhoef,
VU University
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
, and Professor Mogens Fosgerau,
Technical University of Denmark, appointed editors of the journal.
Chris Pringle, Executive Publisher at Elsevier, added, "In recent years,
transportation economics issues such as road pricing, privatization, etc., have
climbed dramatically up policymakers' agendas and stimulated a flood of
research. The growing importance of this field provides the opportunity to
create a new high quality journal to serve it."
Economics of Transportation
will publish two issues in 2012, expanding to follow
a regular quarterly schedule from 2013 on. For more information or to submit a
