Transportation Research Part F
We co-operate with the high impact factor scientific journal Transportation Research Part F: Traffic Psychology and Behaviour and the authors of the best abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper to a special issue of the journal. Accepted papers (after TRF’s review process) will be published in a standard TRF issue, then compiled in an online special issue. There are benefits in submitting an extended abstract to DDI for potential invitation to submit a full paper to TRF, compared to submitting the paper directly to TRF. Invited papers that get through the TRF review as accepted papers will be included in a virtual special issue, increasing exposure of your publication. In addition, the DDI scientific committee that will review the extended abstracts will also be asked to review the corresponding full versions of the papers. We believe this will facilitate faster review turn-around times, due to early commitments for full paper reviews.
All conference abstracts will be peer-reviewed by at least two international experts on driver distraction and inattention, all of whom are members of the conference’s Scientific Committee. All accepted abstracts will be published at the conference website.
