Über diese Zeitschrift

The Journal of Modern Transportation (JMT) is a fully sponsored, peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen. It provides a platform for scholars to publish their works in the general area of transportation, concerned with analysis, planning, design, operations, technologies, and economics of modern transportation and traffic systems with focus on high-speed railway technological and theoretical achievements across the world, especially in China. Specific topics cover

• rail transit systems
• rolling stock design theory and structural reliability
• vehicle-track coupling system dynamics, simulation and control
• wheel-rail contact mechanics and wear
• new detecting and experimental technologies of high-speed railway system
• traction power supply, transmission and control
• rail transit electrification and automation technologies
• high-speed railway route selection
• superconductivity and levitation technology
• magnetic suspension and evacuated tube transport
• transportation infrastructure systems
• roads, bridges, tunnels, and underground engineering
• subgrade and pavement maintenance and performance
• light rail transit and metro technologies
• urban transit systems
• traffic information engineering & control
• intelligent transportation system (ITS) and information technology
• environmental impacts of transportation
• pedestrian studies
• traffic flow theory
• traffic planning, control and management
• traffic and transport safety
• traffic polices and economics
• air transportation
• interdisciplinary transportation research
• other topics of interest

JMT mainly publishes original articles, invited reviews, case reports, short communications, and scientific letters within the journal’s scope. Case studies are published only if they contain some original theoretical content. Papers submitted for publication in JMT should not have been published in their present or any essentially similar form.
