Introducing the World Society for Transport and Land Use Research
Use (JTLU) over the past five years and its rapid success (as measured
by number of quality submissions, breadth of the research reported,
and number of downloaded articles) suggests a broad and healthy research community. To provide the opportunity for a face-to-face research exchange, JTLU co-sponsored the inaugural World Symposium on Transport and Land Use Research (WSTLUR) in July 2011. Looking forward, it is important to formalize the process for the next WSTLUR (anticipated in 2014) and provide a forum for scholarly land use-transport activities. To fill this need, the symposium launched the World Society on Transport and Land Use Research.
