ABJ30 Committee Members and Friends,
I received the message below regarding information for an on-line
journal - now accepted for coverage in the SSCI and JCR - hope this is
It is our great pleasure to let you know
that the European Journal of Transport and Infrastructure Research has
been accepted for coverage in the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI)
and the Journal Citation Reports
(JCR) of ThomsonReuters' Web of Science.
This makes EJTIR, to the best of our
knowledge, the first open-access journal in transportation to receive an
impact factor. As such, we expect that the inclusion in SSCI will
further improve our relevance and visibility within the transportation
Please feel free to forward this message
to colleagues, and to visit our website ( www.ejtir.tbm.tudelft.nl ) for
a look at issue 9.4.

Hope to see everyone in January!!!!
ABJ30 Committee Members and Friends -
Emily and I received invitations to participate in this survey and
thought you might want to also help (sorry for the short time frame) -
ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE (if you haven't
already had the chance) -
We would like your help in sharing information with transportation
planners about a Virtual Conference on Transportation Planning Research
Needs. This is an NCHRP project (NCHRP Project 8-36, Task 95),
conducted for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Planning. The Virtual
Conference will be held on-line with a series of webinars starting in
late February or early March 2010. We are trying to get a broad input on
the challenges and needs facing transportation planners across the
country, including those at State DOTs, MPOs, transit agencies, and
other transportation agencies.
We have an online survey that we would like practitioners to complete to
provide us with an early indication of the topics and issues that they
face; the survey results will help us shape the development of the
virtual conference, and influence the preparation of background
materials. Here is the link to the survey:
We would like to have the survey completed by December 4th so there is
limited time! You may have already received information on this through
TRB, but I am sending this message to encourage you to pass the survey
onto your committee members. Please see text below that you can cut and
paste into an e-mail to distribute to your committee.
Also, as part of this effort, ICF International has been conducting a
scan of the Research Needs Database, as well as other documents that
have identified research priorities. If your committee has recently
developed its own identification of research priorities related to
transportation planning, please share that with us as well, so that we
can include this as part of our background review of research needs.
Please e-mail me at mgrant(a)icfi.com and Terence Plaskon or Kathleen
Rooney (cc:ed on this e-mail). Thank you and happy Thanksgiving!
