The TRANSIT working paper series

The TRANSIT Working Paper Series aims to accelerate the public availability of research undertaken by TRANSIT researchers. It presents (intermediate) research results that in whole or part are suitable for submission to a scientific journal or book. It also considers those articles, which are appropriate for submission to (scientific) conferences, workshops or symposia. Our intention is to provide early access to TRANSIT research.  

Guidelines for authors

Papers shall be submitted in Word format using the TRANSIT working paper template. Besides a front cover page, the template includes a page 2 with information about TRANSIT, about the working paper (indicated whether/where the paper has been presented/submitted, and/or if it is part of a TRANSIT deliverable) and a suggested citation. Furthermore, the paper should include an abstract (max. 200 word), 5 keywords and 4 research highlights (max. 25 words per research highlight).  

Review process

Papers should be submitted to the TRANSIT project officer (, who will process the papers and send them to the appropriate Associate Editor. The editor will ask one reviewers – from the TRANSIT consortium or advisory board – to provide a short written review within three weeks. If the paper has already undergone prior peer-reviewing (e.g. a TRANSIT deliverable review, selection or feedback during a scientific workshop or conference), the Associate Editors may decide to accept the manuscript as a TRANSIT working paper without an additional review process.
