The field of transportation is experiencing revolutionary changes due to rapid innovations in technology and operations. For example, new vehicle technologies such as connected and autonomous vehicles are changing the dynamics of infrastructure planning, construction and maintenance. Shared mobility services (ridesharing, micromobility, ride-hailing) are reshaping travel demand, travel behavior and the economics of transportation. Practitioners and researchers who are dealing with these rapid developments could benefit from quick access to the latest research. However, typical turnaround times for publishing full-length research articles in major journals, though improved from a decade ago, have not kept pace with recent rapid innovations. Journal of Modern Mobility Systems (JMMS) fills this gap by publishing peer-reviewed research briefs (1500 words or less) in a timely manner. Turnaround time for JMMS articles is targeted to be 3 months or less. To merit publication in JMMS, the submitted articles should highlight a significant new discovery or an innovative methodology that is of interest to the community of transportation practitioners and researchers at large in areas related to modern mobility systems. The journal scope includes a broad range of research topics in transportation policy, planning, systems analysis, engineering, technological innovations and societal impact related to MMS.
