      The Journal of Sustainable Mobility - Inaugural issue out now
      The Journal of Sustainable Mobility
      General Editor: Michael Zhang
      Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University, UK


      Published in association with Nottingham Trent University, UK, Cranfield University, UK, and the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), China
      ISSN 2053-2350 (online) Published twice annually


      "It is surprising it has taken so long for a journal to emerge that deals specifically with sustainable mobility . . . The Journal of Sustainable Mobility is long overdue."
      Dr Paul Nieuwenhuis, Cardiff University, UK; author of The Business of Sustainable Mobility


      We are pleased to announce the inaugural issue of the Journal of Sustainable Mobility. The Journal of Sustainable Mobility is the first of its kind, bridging cutting-edge engineering and technology developments with social science applications to create an interdisciplinary forum to debate and further the development of green transport for the future.


      Focusing on the sustainable developments of the automotive industry and road transport management systems, the Journal of Sustainable Mobility explores the links between transportation, technological management and innovation, energy use, and sustainable development and responsible business, presenting academic research alongside practical application in order to inform policy and practice.


      Topics covered include:
      • low-carbon vehicles technologies,
      • renewable/clean/green technologies;
      • biofuels and other sources of renewable energy;
      • transportation management systems;
      • vehicle emission controls;
      • sustainable transport policies and governance
      The Journal of Sustainable Mobility is published by Greenleaf in association with Nottingham Trent University, Cranfield University and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. JSM is associated with the Annual International Symposium on Sustainable Mobility. The journal was launched on May 28 at the Second International Symposium on Sustainable Mobility, held at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, China. 


      Editor-in-Chief Dr Michael Zhang is Reader in International Strategy at Nottingham Business School. He said:


      "The continued collaborative effort from the three institutions (NTU, Cranfield, and CAS) means we will be holding the symposium annually. As the Chair of the symposium and Editor-in-Chief of JSM I am delighted to see it happening at a time when the world is witnessing increases in population, in the numbers of vehicles in use, and in the annual CO2 emissions and CO2 concentration in the atmosphere.
      The contribution to those increases from large emerging economies cannot be overstated. I hope that both the annual symposium and JSM will become the home for researchers, policymakers, and businesses to exchange ideas, share knowledge, stimulate learning, and shed light on the evolving paradigm change of sustainable mobility."


      JSM is essential reading for academics, practitioners, policy-makers and others interested in the latest research and thinking on sustainable transport and mobility.
