Transportation Science cover

Transportation Science is the flagship journal of the Transportation Science and Logistics Society of INFORMS and is the foremost journal in the field of transportation analysis. The journal features comprehensive, timely articles and surveys that cover all modes of transportation, present and prospective, and researches planning and design issues and the related economic, operational, and social concerns.

Our Member Authors have the opportunity to work with INFORMS PR to highlight their work through press releases and media placements.


Transportation Science focuses primarily on fundamental theories, coupled with observational and experimental studies of transportation and logistics phenomena and processes, mathematical models, advanced methodologies and novel applications in transportation and logistics systems analysis, planning and design. The journal reflects the diverse interdisciplinary interests of the transportation science and logistics community, with members that hold primary affiliations in engineering (civil, industrial, and aeronautical), physics, economics, applied mathematics, and business.
