Transport and COVID-19

More than two years ago, the spread of the COVID-19 virus dramatically changed our lives. This had strong impacts, among others, on daily travel patterns, long-distance (air) travel, and freight transport and logistics. Consequently, many transport researchers have collected data to analyse the effects of the pandemic on transport, resulting in multiple studies now being published. As a result, we feel the time is right to organize a special issue on transport and COVID-19 in Transport Reviews. We are looking for papers that will summarise the existing work on COVID-19 and a certain aspect of transport, while also critically reflecting on these studies and providing a forward-looking discussion on future expectations in the field.

Submission Instructions

This special issue encourages submissions of review articles on (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • COVID-19 and active travel (walking and/or cycling)
  • COVID-19 and public transport (ridership)
  • COVID-19 and activity-travel behaviour
  • COVID-19, travel attitudes and experiences
  • COVID-19 and working from home
  • COVID-19 and transport safety
  • COVID-19 and transport equity
  • COVID-19 and long-distance (air and/or rail) travel
  • COVID-19, freight transport and logistics
  • COVID-19 and transport-related emissions

Since we want to publish review papers on a wide range of topics (related to COVID-19) and avoid having two or more papers on similar topics, we will apply a two-step submission process. First, an abstract (500 to 1000 words) needs to be sent to the editors-in-chief (by email: [email protected] and [email protected]) specifying the chosen topic, methodology and planned structure of the paper. Based on a critical review of this abstract, the editors will then invite the authors of eligible abstracts to submit a full review paper. This paper will need to follow the journal’s general guidelines:

https://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?show=instructions&journalCode=ttrv20, and will be reviewed in a similar way as regular issue papers.

Timeline:

  • Deadline abstract submission: July 15, 2022
  • Notification of conditional acceptance: August 15, 2022
  • Deadline full paper submission: February 15, 2023
  • Author notification of first-round reviews: May 1, 2023
  • Revised paper resubmission: August 15, 2023
  • Author notification of (potential) second-round reviews: October 1, 2023
  • Potential resubmission of revised paper: December 1, 2023
  • Expected publication of special issue: January or March 2024 (first or second issue of 2024 (papers will be published online as soon as they are accepted))
