Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- 1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- 2. Submissions (for review): The submission file is in PDF file format.
- 3. The text adheres to the requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines (e.g., double-spaced, 12-point font, and illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text, not at the end.)
- 4. If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the authors should remove their names and potentially self-references from the review submission.
- 5. The names and email addresses of two potential reviewers are listed in the Comments to the Editor box below.
- 6. As a member of the Transport and Land Use research community, we expect authors to review papers as well as write them. For every paper submission, the authors are expected to conduct 1-2 reviews for the journal if so called upon.
Articles: report original data analysis and advance theory or methods (including applying methods in novel ways or to new questions). They are typically 4,000-10,000 words, but there is no specific word count.
Literature Reviews: comprehensively and authoritatively describe any subject within the journal's scope. They have an educational aim and are typically 4,000-10,000 words, but there is no specific word count.
Correspondence (Short Empirical Articles): briefly document original data analysis (generally using established methods and testing previously proposed theories), generally under 2,000 words.
Methods (Short Method Articles): present a new experimental or statistical method, test or procedure (e.g., GIS protocols or web interfaces), generally using established datasets. The method described may either be completely new or may improve existing techniques. These are generally under 2,000 words.
Viewpoints (Commentaries, Debates, Discussions, and Book Reviews): Present an argument that is not necessarily based on practical research, including commenting on previously published papers, reviewing recently published books, and debate articles including theoretical, sociological and ethical aspects. These are generally about 1,000 words.
Discussions (provide opinions, reactions, judgments of importance, and links/connections to other ideas and subfields): comment on previously published papers, which may be accompanied by a response from the original author.
Book Reviews: summarize and comment on recently published books, generally 1000 to 1500 words.
