Aim & Scope
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 countries and 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. The JRS provides anyone interested in road safety with a rich source of current knowledge, evidence, developments, and best practice in road safety implementation.
The JRS provides authors with access to an international audience as well as the opportunity to share and contribute to road safety knowledge and evidence. The JRS showcases a body of work that can save lives and prevent injuries, and can target policy makers and practitioners, and provide an evidence-base for road safety policy decisions and program development.
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. Current and Back Issues are available online for free download.
The Journal of Road Safety commits to providing all users with free and unrestricted access to all contents through open-access, because we value facilitation of the latest research and evidence in order to contribute to the growing knowledge and best practice in road safety. Open-access ensures that high quality road safety research and practice papers are more discoverable, visible, accessible and usable and will be more likely to be used to further advance the field of road safety. Open-access allows everyone from around the world – students, policymakers, advocates, implementers, funders and all others interested in road safety – to learn and be part of the progress.
Under an open-access CC-BY license, authors own the copyright to their work and are free to share it anywhere, anytime, with anyone. This means that the valued work of JRS authors is available for everyone to find, read and reuse around the world as long as the author and original sources are appropriately cited.
