Elsevier Announces the Launch of a New Journal: Case Studies on Transport Policy


Oxford, February 21, 2013Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of Case Studies on Transport Policy (CSTP) which will be published in collaboration with the World Conference on Transport Research Society (WCTRS) beginning 2013.

Case Studies on Transport Policy will provide a valuable reference for the specialised study and application of transport policy by offering in-depth theoretical analysis and detailed case study descriptions for the benefit of decision makers, planners and practitioners. Case Studies on Transport is a sister journal to Elsevier journal Transport Policy.

"Academics all over the world recognise the merits of case study methods, but strain to find empirical material that provides objective and operational illustration of the theories and approaches lectured,” Editor-in-Chief Professor Rosário Macário from the Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal, said of the launch of the journal. “CSTP aims to resolve this issue by providing a repository of relevant case studies to support academic lecturers, practitioners and government policymakers in the field of transport policy.”

Chris Pringle, Executive Publisher at Elsevier, added, “We are delighted that our longstanding collaboration with WCTRS will be further strengthened by publishing CSTP. The new journal will fill an important gap and provide a valuable resource for researchers, educators and practitioners in this field.”

Case Studies on Transport Policy will publish two issues in 2013.
