Call for papers for a virtual special issue of Transportation Research Part D on the Topic : “Sustainable Transportation Energy Pathways”

The IPCC recently published their 1.5 degree C report, indicating that the planet must achieve carbon neutrality by mid century and virtually all sectors much be fully decarbonized by 2060.  Transportation represents a particular challenge. Rising car ownership, freight movement, and air travel patterns will increase CO2 emissions unless strong actions are taken to change this course.  A clear pathway of decreasing emissions must be in place by 2030.

Understanding the most promising options at both the micro and macro scale will be critical to making progress. At the micro scale, the potential CO2 abatement and cost from reductions in vehicle travel , modal shift to lower carbon modes, and technology and fuel options must be better understood, particularly in terms of how the options are likely to evolve into the future. At a macro scale, understanding the relative role of these options, how they may interact, what may be optimal combinations, and how policies can achieve these combinations, are greatly needed.  The relative potential and cost of options varies with geography, as does political feasibility.  Some measures can be overarching and international, but many will be national or local.

This special issue will be a collection of high-quality papers considering future transportation CO2 reduction options on a micro and macro scale.  It will include studies of particular mitigation measures, technologies, and fuels, and will include studies that look across the landscape of such options to identify broad, promising strategies. It welcomes original research, reviews, and short communications on the following topics:
·         New and expected future trends, such as on-demand mobility, changes in freight distribution logistics, and vehicle automation, and how these may affect CO2 reduction.
·         The potential market for electric vehicles, beyond the 0.2% global share they represent today; and their CO2 reduction potential and cost in different applications (2, 4 wheelers, trucks, etc).
·         The role of hydrogen relative to electrification, it’s relative costs and benefits, and markets where it may play an important role
·         The role of advanced biofuels for light and heavy duty futures, considering costs, availability, and net GHG impacts.
·         The potential for the various alternative low-carbon technology and fuels in trucking, shipping, rail and aviation
·         Modeling efforts that incorporate and compare various strategies, or compare transportation emissions reductions to other sectors.
·         Innovative policies towards achieving specific or combined strategies, within or across jurisdictions
We expect that new research will help guide strong CO2 reductions in the transportation sector worldwide, given the renewed IPCC imperative.

Timeline:

Full papers are due by July 1st, 2019.  First reviews will be completed three months after submission, with a goal of having the special issue completed by July 1st, 2020.

This issue will be a virtual special issue.  It means that your paper will appear in the next regular issue after it is accepted.  After all papers are accepted, guest editors will compile a virtual issue on the journal website.

For an example of virtual issues, visit https://www.journals.elsevier.com/applied-soft-computing/news/virtual-special-issue-vsi-introduction

Submission Method:

All submissions must be original and may not be under review by any other journals. All manuscripts will be submitted via the Transportation Research Part D (TRD) online submission system. Authors should indicate that the paper is submitted for consideration for publication in this special issue. Author Guidelines: https://www.elsevier.com/journals/transportation-research-part-d-transport-and-environment/1361-9209/guide-for-authors

The submission website for this journal is located at: https://www.evise.com/profile/#/TRD/login

To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion into the special issue you are editing, it is important that authors select the name of the special issue when they upload their manuscripts: VSI: Energy Pathways

All submitted papers should address significant issues pertinent to the themes of this issue and fall within the scope of Transportation Research: Part D. Criteria for acceptance include originality, contribution, and scientific merit. All manuscripts must be written in English with high scientific writing standards.

Acceptance for publication will be based on referees’ and editors’ recommendations following a standard peer review process.
All submissions and inquiries should be directed to the attention of guest editors:
