Journal

The Journal of Road Safety* (JRS) is an international, scholarly, cross-disciplinary, peer-reviewed, and open-access journal focused wholly on road safety.

The JRS accepts papers from all regions around the world and publishes a diverse range of high-quality papers on road safety from researchers, policymakers, program implementers, and other road safety experts. Our Editorial Board and reviewers ensure the best papers are accepted into the Journal, to provide a rich source of current knowledge, evidence, developments, and best practice to those interested in road safety.

How can I access the JRS?

The Journal is published quarterly (February, May, August, November) and electronic copies are emailed to members two weeks before publication, and again on the publication date. JRS articles are available online for free viewing or download at journalofroadsafety.org. If you would like to become a member and receive an exclusive preview of the Journal each quarter, please click here or contact admin@acrs.org.au

How can I contribute to the JRS?

There are a number of accepted article types that you can submit to the Journal, from peer-reviewed articles to contributed articles. You can visit the Author page to learn more about the requirements for each type, as well as to download the author instructions and Word template.

If your article is accepted into an edition of the JRS, you will be given the opportunity to write in our Author Corner in the Weekly Alert, our weekly e-newsletter. The Author Corner allows you to give some context to your article and tell readers a bit more about you and the work that you do.

Please feel free to reach out to journaleditor@acrs.org.au if you need help submitting to the JRS.

LMIC Mentoring Program

The ACRS offers mentoring to authors from low- to middle- income countries (LMICs) by matching them up to mentors who will support them through the process of creating, submitting, and editing a manuscript for the JRS. These mentoring relationships are expected to last up to 18 months but this timeframe should be negotiated by both parties.

If you would like to become either a mentor or a mentee within this program, please reach out to journaleditor@acrs.org.au for more information.
