Journal of Transport and Land Use: JTLU Transitions

The Journal of Transport and Land Use was founded in 2007, publishing its first issue in 2008. It has grown significantly over the past decade to become the most widely cited open-access journal in the field of transport, with its most recent volume publishing over 70 articles. It is now indexed by DOAJ, Google Scholar, JSTOR, Research Papers in Economics (RePEc), Social Sciences Citation Index (Web of Science), and Scopus. It is also affiliated with the World Society for Transport and Land Use Research to be a major outlet for papers presented at its conferences after undergoing a rigorous review process.

As we enter its twelfth year in 2019, David Levinson, who has served as general editor for its entire existence to date, is passing the baton to his University of Minnesota colleague Yingling Fan. David will continue to be around, but is devoting more energies to the launch of Transport Findings, a new peer-reviewed, open-access journal devoted to short form articles, and to the development of a Transport Accessibility Manual.

Yingling Fan is Professor of Urban and Regional Planning and the Director of the Global Transit Innovations program at the University of Minnesota. Her research focuses on developing novel land use and transportation solutions to improve public health and social equity.  She has served as a board member of the World Society for Transport and Land Use Research since 2014 and an editor of the Journal of Transport and Land Use since 2015. 

The Journal has also added new volunteer editors and associate editors to help with the increased workload.

The Journal is published and sponsored by the University of Minnesota Center for Transportation Studies.
