The Journal of Transport & Health (JTH) is devoted to publishing research that advances our knowledge on the many interactions between transport and health and the policies that affect these. In general, we will prioritise papers that evaluate or inform the development of interventions and policies to improve population health, or that make a genuinely original contribution, rather than being basic descriptive studies. The journal aims to cover transport and health issues in all countries; in general, studies should have a context, or lessons, that can be transferred to other locations. Interactions between transport and health include, for instance:

  • the impacts on public health and inequalities of:
    • active modes of transport;
    • noise and air pollution generated by transport;
    • road travel injuries (see below);
    • community severance;
  • road danger and its reduction (see below):
    • actual safety and security hazards associated with transport;
    • perceptions of danger and factors affecting these;
  • factors affecting transport choices:
    • urban form;
    • location and accessibility of health and other facilities;
    • age, gender, health and disability;
    • socio-economic inequalities;
    • rurality;
    • leisure travel;
  • synergies between sustainability and health impacts of transport;
  • economic and health impact assessments
  • methodological advances, including considerations of complex systems; and
  • policies and interventions that promote or discourage healthy and sustainable transport modes, transport systems and communities (see below).
