Traffic Safety Research journal

The Traffic Safety Research interdisciplinary journal is an open-access, peer-reviewed scientific journal. It was started in 2020 by Lund University (Sweden), TU Delft (Netherlands) and International Co-operation on Theories and Concepts in Traffic safety (ICTCT).

The journal's overaching objective is to contribute to the global shift to the Safe System paradigm within the road transportation domain. The journal promotes publication of innovative research within engineering, psychology, sociology, medicine and other related fields in attempt to explain and address the phenomenon of road casualties. Proactive methods and analyses as well as multidisciplinary views on the road traffic safety problems are encouraged.

The journal topics cover (but not limited to):

  • system analysis and policy research related to road safety;
  • in-depth exploration and causal explanation of accident mechanisms;
  • behaviour and attitudes in traffic related to safety;
  • safety of specific groups in traffic, such as cyclists, pedestrians, children or elderly;
  • medical, economical, psychological and other consequences of accidents;
  • methodological development covering a wide palette of methods such as accident modelling, in-depth investigations, data linkage, self-reporting, surrogate measures of safety, behavioural observations and naturalistic studies, virtual reality, micro-simulations, etc.
  • innovative approaches and explorative studies that bring in new theoretical insights or explanatory mechanisms (even if based on smaller datasets);
  • development and evaluation of road traffic safety counter-measures;
  • state-of-the art knowledge summaries and literature reviews.

The main criteria in selection of papers for the publication are novelty, scientific excellence and contribution to practical knowledge within road safety.
