SAE International Journal of Transportation Safety

Aims and Scope
The SAE International Journal of Transportation Safety provides a forum for peer-reviewed scholarly works concerning all aspects of injury causation and mitigation associated with any transportation system. This includes safety mechanisms, impact, and injury response and tolerance on multiple scales, with the objective of developing restraint, vehicle, and infrastructure environments that are safer for the occupant, rider, passerby, and warfighter. Broad areas such as biomechanics, crashworthiness, accident reconstruction, and physical and computational modeling are within the Journal’s scope.

Editor-in-Chief: Warren Hardy, Ph.D.
Virginia Tech

Hardy is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech, is part of the core faculty of the School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences, and also has appointments in the Wake Forest University Bowman Gray School of Medicine. He serves as Director of the Virginia Tech-Wake Forest University Center for Injury Biomechanics on the VT campus. After earning his bachelor’s degree in engineering science (bioengineering option) from the University of Michigan, Hardy received a master’s degree in mechanical engineering (biomechanics) and Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from Wayne State University. Hardy was a Ford Graduate Fellow and is currently a College of Engineering Faculty Fellow. His research interests focus on traumatic brain injury, aortic rupture, abdominal injury, and combat-related trauma. He consistently organizes and chairs sessions for the SAE World Congress and the World Congress of Biomechanics, and is a former chair of the Scientific Program Committee of the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine. He is a member of the Stapp Advisory Committee, and also holds membership in SAE International, ASME, IEEE, AAAM, and BMES.

SAE International's scholarly journals welcome authors from industry, academia, and government to submit original research for potential journal publication. Authors are invited to submit review-ready manuscripts featuring a detailed description of the research (including methodology, assumptions, hardware, observations, analysis, and a comparison of results with prior work). Papers that are deemed appropriate will undergo a comprehensive double-blind peer review for potential publication in the Journal.

  • Manuscripts can be submitted to the Journal by selecting one of the 15 subject areas. Please note the sub-topics when deciding where to submit your paper.

SAE's scholarly journals are currently running open Calls for Papers which are not subject to deadlines. Submissions will be evaluated throughout the year. Being published in SAE's scholarly journals can raise an author's profile in the automotive, aerospace, or commercial vehicles fields, while contributing to the industry's body of technical knowledge.

Submissions can be uploaded online via Editorial Manager—SAE's submission and peer review system. When uploading your review-ready manuscript, please include paper title, corresponding author name, and contact information. The submission process for this journal Call for Papers is different from that of SAE's events in that SAE's journals are not considering abstracts by themselves, but rather our editors assess whether the complete paper is appropriate for a journal peer review.

SAE International scholarly journals Mission Statement

Aligning with SAE International’s mission, SAE journals publish state-of-the-art research findings that advance vehicle and system knowledge in a neutral forum for the benefit of society. Each journal serves the needs of academic and industry authors, researchers, and readers in a medium tailored for the discovery, integration, and application of research. Reflecting SAE's commitment to the highest scientific publishing standards, all published articles are rigorously peer reviewed by at least three recognized experts prior to selection by a journal's Editorial Board, and the majority of SAE journals are indexed in the Web of Science, Emerging Sources Citation Index.
