      Call for Papers – World Transport Policy & Practice Special Edition: A Future Beyond the Car

       

      This special edition of World Transport Policy & Practice is planned to be published early in 2012.  The deadline for submission of articles is July 31st.  A broad introduction by Guest Editor Steve Melia will set the scene for up to half a dozen articles of 2,000 to 5,000 words around the following indicative themes:

       

      ·         Good practice in removal of cars/traffic from urban areas

      ·         Experience of new practices or technologies which offer the potential to replace private motor traffic in the longer-term

      ·         Alternatives to increasing motorisation in developing or newly-industrialised countries

      ·         Research into carfree lifestyles in developed countries

      ·         The challenges and limitations of ‘solving the problem’ through alternative fuels and new car technology

       

      In line with the overall aims of the journal, we are looking for evidence-based articles which will be of use to policymakers, campaigners and/or transport professionals.  The articles should be about a specific aspect of ‘the big picture’, so for example, an article about experience of freight delivery in carfree or pedestrian areas would be appropriate, whereas a study of a specific change designed to increase efficiency of deliveries in a pedestrian area, would not.

      Best Regards
