Forthcoming papers in JTLU

A new set of Forthcoming papers in the Journal of Transport and Land Use have been made available online. These are mostly papers that have been presented at the 2014 WSTLUR Conference in Delft and completed a comprehensive peer review process. More are coming.

JTLU is an open access journal, so unlike much research, this is not behind a firewall. These will be assigned volumes and issues over the coming months, but these are out now.

Submissions of full papers to the World Symposium on Transport and Land Use Research (WSTLUR) to be held in Delft (June 24-27, 2014) were due on November 30 (with few extenuating exceptions). The announcement was made many months ago. Below is a graph of the rate of submissions by day. We have to date 130 submissions. It always amazes me how people work up to the deadline, even with the US Thanksgiving holiday smack dab in the middle of the deadline. (One could fit a very nice reverse hazard curve to that).
