Transport-related open access journals
I always enjoying seeing what the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) can tell us about a subject.
There are many transport-related open access journals. Any one of them would be a good topic for investigation and discussion in the present forum (members of the present group are welcome to to investigate and discuss these journals further).
Here I will simply present a quick overview, based on a series of keyword searches across journal titles and descriptions in the DOAJ database.
The only kind of transport to appear as a large sub-category is air transport. Other sub-categories are presumably represented in specialist journals that are not yet registered as open access in the DOAJ Directory (which is probably the largest directory of its kind).
