Our research publications and conferences are oriented into traffic and transport engineering field. E-books are open access books which will examine emerging trends and concerns in the areas of: air traffic and transport research, road traffic and transport research, rail traffic and transport research, inland waterways traffic and transport research, maritime transport and ports research, multimodal transportation and logistics research, postal traffic and networks research, telecommunication traffic and networks research, sustainable transport, traffic and transport economics and policy, transport and spatial development, traffic and transport safety analysis and policy, transport economic regulation, transportation infrastructure systems, information communication technology and transport, urban transport and policy instruments, transport and the environment protection, motor vehicles: design, manufacture and exploitation, fuels, lubricants and maintenance materials, travel behavior, pipeline transport, transportation law, etc.
The goal of publishing e-books is to broaden the knowledge of traffic and transport academicians and experts by promoting free access and provide valuable insight to transport related research and ideas. E-books serve as a great resource for researchers, academics and PhD students across the globe. The great potential of e-books is multiple international authors from the same field of research engaged around certain topics.
E-books are indexed in world top databases.
Our scientific board is responsible for quality and sustainability of e-books publishing and availability. Leading experts and researchers thanks to the voluntary contribution provide high standards and recognized quality of publications.
