I think this new publication shows some promise. If nothing else, I hope it gets the multiple interest groups reading the same articles and maybe reaching out across issue areas a bit more. We might need more architectural/urban design discussion though.

JOURNAL OF TRANSPORT & HEALTH PUBLISHED FIRST ISSUE

-> According to the introduction to the first issue of the Journal of Transport & Health (http://bit.ly/1jtWSZO), “The aims and scope of the journal… are to promote cross-disciplinary research into the many ways in which transport policy affects health and inequalities, how awareness of these links can affect transport policy decisions – and how poor health can affect transport options for individuals. We aim to make this journal relevant to academics, professionals and policy-makers in many fields, including transport (planning and engineering), public health, spatial planning, epidemiology, geography, sustainable development, sociology, and urban studies…

Active travel – walking and cycling – is likely to be a recurring theme, as is public transport (transit)…

“We intend to give a speedy response to submissions, and to publish final proofs of accepted articles online as soon as they are available. Speed of acceptance or rejection also depends on having a sufficient pool of experts to review submitted manuscripts. To join our panel of peer-reviewers, register yourself as a new user on the journal website (click on ‘register’ at http://bit.ly/1dMNskk)…”
