Aims and scope of JATRS

The Journal of the Air Transport Research Society (JATRS) aims to provide an international forum for exchanging scientific discussions concerning all issues and challenges in our air transportation system, while enabling the capability for truly multi-national and multi-disciplinary issues through high quality research published in JATRS. The journal is a scientific outlet of the Air Transport Research Society and aligned with its goals. The journal is hosted at Beihang University, China.

The scope of the journal covers a wide range of domains (including economics, engineering, law, management, operations, and planning) and sectors (airlines, airports, aircraft, and air traffic management). Particularly, the journal is interested in contributions which have a real-world impact on the industry and society. Accordingly, submitted manuscripts should emphasize their real-world relevance. Submissions which are purely concerned with synthetic / toy-scale data are more fit to other journals of the aviation community. In case of doubts, please contact our Editorial board and inquire for the fit of your manuscript before submission.

In addition to receiving open submissions from the general community, JATRS will provide an outlet for extended version of high-quality presentations from the yearly ATRS conference. Finally, JATRS will publish overview work and other survey-like material, written by established experts from the community.

JATRS is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author.
