Thomson Reuters, a leading provider of research ecosystem in the world, has released its Journal Citation Reports® (JCR) 2014. Every year, scholarly communities wait for the release because JCR reports the results of impact factors evaluation on high-quality journals from many recognized regional and international publishers. The 2014 release consists of analysis taken within early 2014 to calculate citation data of invetigates journals from two previous years, meaning that the 2014 release would deliver data from 2012 and 2013. The analysis is conducted based on Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science, covering ore than 10.000 journals that have received its impact factors. Among the huge number of indexed journals, the following list shows impact factors obtained by scholarly journals in Transportation Research subject. The subject refers to a multidisciplinary discipline which is extended to cover variety expertise in transportation sector, including scientific approach in investigating traffic safety & accident, environmental impacts, new and emerging technologies in transportation, mathematical modeling & analysis, transportation policy, transportation system, transportation infrastructure, logistics, and even behavioral and psychological analysis in road traffic and transportation activities. Among journals in the subject, there are ones which have ever obtained impact factors in the previous (years), so there would be a possible comparation of the journals’ performance over time. The red color refers to the decrease of impact factor of respective journal, while green one means there is an increase of impact factors.

Journal of Safety Research
Provides for the exchange of scientific evidence in all areas of safety and health, including traffic, workplace, home, and community. While this research forum invites submissions using rigorous methodologies in all related areas, it focuses on basic and applied research in unintentional injury and illness prevention. Affiliated with the National Safety Council, it seeks to engage the global scientific community including academic researchers, engineers, government agencies, policy makers, corporate decision makers, safety professionals and practitioners, psychologists, social scientists, and public health professionals.

Journal of Transport Geography
Publishes the major strands of current transport geography research: Transport policy practice and analysis, especially the impacts of deregulation, privatization and subsidy control; Infrastructure impact on trip making, the spatial economy and regional development; Technological innovation in transport and telecommunications and global and regional economic integration; The growing mobility gap between rich and poor and differential accessibility to jobs and services; Transport, environment and energy; Travel, recreation and tourism; Spatial and behavioural aspects of modelling transport demand; Methodological developments; The role and utility of Geographical Information Systems in transport research.

Transport Policy
Aims at bridging the gap between theory and practice in transport. Its subject areas reflect the concerns of policymakers in government, industry, voluntary organisations and the public at large, providing independent, original and rigorous analysis to understand how policy decisions have been taken, monitor their effects, and suggest how they may be improved. The journal covers the entire transport sector including all modes: land, sea and air; public and private; motorised and non-motorised; passenger and freight, including transport in the context of related sectors such as energy, housing, industry and planning. Policy concerns in transport are wide and cover safety, efficiency, economic development, local and global environmental impacts, energy, land-use, equity and access.

Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice
Contains papers of general interest in all passenger and freight transportation modes: policy analysis, formulation and evaluation; planning; interaction with the political, socioeconomic and physical environment; design, management and evaluation of transportation systems. Topics are approached from any discipline or perspective: economics, engineering, sociology, psychology, etc. Case studies, survey and expository papers are included, as are articles which contribute to unification of the field, or to an understanding of the comparative aspects of different systems. Papers which assess the scope for technological innovation within a social or political framework are also published.

Transportation Research Part B: Methodological
Publishes papers on all methodological aspects of the subject, particularly those that require mathematical analysis. The general theme of the journal is the development and solution of problems that are adequately motivated to deal with important aspects of the design and/or analysis of transportation systems. Areas covered include: traffic flow; design and analysis of transportation networks; control and scheduling; optimization; queuing theory; logistics; supply chains; development and application of statistical, econometric and mathematical models to address transportation problems; cost models; pricing and/or investment; traveler or shipper behavior; cost-benefit methodologies.

Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies
Addresses development, applications, and implications, in the field of transportation, of emerging technologies from such fields as operations research, computer science, electronics, control systems, artificial intelligence, and telecommunications, among others. The interest is not in the individual technologies or methodologies per se, but in their ultimate implications for the planning, design, operation, control, management, maintenance and rehabilitation of transportation systems, services and components. Of particular interest are the impacts of emerging technologies on transportation system performance, in terms of level of service, capacity, safety, reliability, resource consumption and the environment, economics and finance, privacy, standards, and liability.

Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment
Publishes original research on the environmental impacts of transportation, policy responses to those impacts, and their implications for the design, planning, and management of transportation systems. It covers all aspects of the interaction between transportation and the environment. Invites submissions of research papers on all modes of transportation, including maritime and air transportation as well as land transportation, and considers their impacts on the environment in the broad sense. Papers dealing with both mobile aspects and transportation infrastructure are considered. The emphasis is on empirical findings and policy responses of a regulatory, planning, technical or fiscal nature.

Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review
Publishes informative articles drawn from across the spectrum of logistics and transportation research. Subjects include, but are not limited to: Transport economics including cost and production functions, capacity, demand, pricing, externalities, modal studies; Transport infrastructure and investment appraisal; Evaluation of public policies; Empirical studies of management practices and performance; Logistics and operations models, especially with application; Logistics and supply-chain management topics.

Transportation Research Part F: Traffic Psychology and Behaviour
Focuses on the behavioural and psychological aspects of traffic and transport, enhancing theory development, improve the quality of empirical studies and to stimulate the application of research findings in practice. It provides a focus and a means of communication for the considerable amount of research activities that are now being carried out in this field. The journal provides a forum for transportation researchers, psychologists, ergonomists, engineers and policy-makers with an interest in traffic and transport psychology.
