About Vehicles


Vehicles (ISSN 2624-8921) is an open access journal of automotive engineering and transportation engineering. Our aim is to provide an advanced forum for theoretical, computational and experimental research on vehicles (motorcycles, cars, buses, trucks, trains, trams, UAVs, drones, etc.) and transportation with regards to the design, modelling and simulation, manufacture, testing, operation and modification of those vehicles and their engineering systems. Vehicles publishes articles, reviews and Special Issues.

Vehicles encourages scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. Proposed papers should present new results and ideas of value to the vehicle dynamics community. These works may also provide authoritative reviews of progress in a specific area. The journal has no restriction on the maximum length of the papers. Full experimental details should be provided so the results can be reproduced.
