Announcing a New Name for our Premier Publication + Call for Mentors

A huge thank you to ACRS members, authors, peer-reviewers and readers who have made contributions and supported the growth of Journal of the Australasian College of Road Safety (JACRS). The ACRS’ Journal has evolved over the years but with a continued focus on improving road safety from its birth. In order to reflect our increasingly international standing and influence in road safety, our Journal will be published under the new title Journal of Road Safety (JRS)[ISSN 2652-4252 (Online); ISSN 2652-4260 (Print); DOI:10.33492/JRS] from February 2020.

We continue to welcome your submissions online.

Author Instructions and Word 2010 / Word 97 – 2003 Template to guide your writing are available from the JRS website.

LMIC Mentoring Program

The Journal of Road Safety (JRS) continues to be committed to its roles beyond the publication of peer reviewed papers and contributed articles.  Messages from the President and the CEO, Chapter reports and ACRS News will continue to be an integral part of the Journal for the benefit of ACRS members.

The Journal of Road Safety (JRS) is also excited to announce a new program with the support of the Australian Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development. We will be providing capacity development support for road safety professionals from low and middle income countries (LMICs) through a mentorship program for scientific journal paper-writing.

This is an exciting opportunity for LMIC authors to further develop their capacity and contribute to the improvement of road safety in LMICs, which suffer 93% of global road crash deaths.  If you are interested to become a mentor or mentee please see details and sign up online.

We look forward to further growing the JRS with you and bringing you a valuable scientific journal dedicated to road safety.
