Asian Transport Studies (ATS) is a refereed international journal published by the Eastern Asia Society for Transportation Studies (EASTS).
EASTS, which was founded in 1994, is an international cooperative society of researchers and practitioners from the Asian region. Its primary objectives are to foster and support excellence in transportation research and practice and to stimulate professional interchanges in all aspects and modes of transportation. It organizes an international conference on transportation research every two years, in which many transportation professionals, including policy makers, administrators, practitioners, researchers, and representatives of government, industry, and academic institutions participate.
ATS is a unique academic journal that highlights “transport in Asia.” ATS aims at providing useful insights into solving Asia-specific transport-related issues from both theoretical and practical perspectives. It treats all types of transport modes and all issues in the transport sector. ATS contains high-quality papers selected from papers presented at the EASTS Conference (acceptance rate is 6.70% in 2017) as well as general academic papers from transportation professionals through a rigid peer-review process. The general papers can be submitted to the ATS editor at any time. Even though papers dealing with the Asia-specific issues are especially welcome, other papers related to transportation studies are also within the scope of this journal; papers from non-EASTS members and from non-Asian transportation professionals are also welcome.
