Sustainable Transport and Livability

About Sustainable Transport and Livability

Sustainable Transport and Livability will focus on publishing research that furthers our knowledge on the many linkages between sustainable transport and livability of cities, and the policy, planning, design, and engineering interventions that affect these connections.

The journal aims to cover sustainable transport and livability issues in both developed and developing economies with a potential of transferability to other locations. ​ ​

These linkages of sustainable transport to livability may include impacts on how sustainable transport interventions…

  • affect physical, mental, economic, and social well being

  • can make society and individuals healthier and happier

  • affect quality of life, equity, social justice

  • impacts safety, accessibility, affordability, and environmental quality​

  • can contribute toward improving disaster resiliency of urban transport systems​

In general, we will give preference to papers that evaluate or inform the development of transportation interventions to improve livability of cities and make an original contribution.

The journal will particularly encourage submissions that are cross-disciplinary or inter-disciplinary. Submissions may include empirical studies, theoretical research, case studies, review articles, and conceptual papers. It encourages both quantitative and qualitative research approaches, and transfer of research into practice. ​

    Taylor & Francis are currently supporting a 100% APC discount for all authors until the end of 2024, plus VAT or other local taxes where applicable in your country. There is no submission charge.
