Transport database

Stampa questa pagina

The single most comprehensive source of international transportation information available, the Transport database contains citations and abstracts published in member countries of the European Conference of Ministers of Transport and associated countries about all types/modes of transport emphasizing land travel.

The Transport database consists of two component bibliographic databases produced by the world's leading transportation research organizations: The International Transport Research Documentation (ITRD) produced by TRL Limited on behalf of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) based in Paris; and the Transportation Research Information Services database (TRIS) produced by the Transportation Research Board of the United States.

Each database has a unique orientation.

Together, the databases feature published research in transportation systems and their components: highways construction, traffic, transport, road safety, intermodal transport, environmental effects of transport, transport economics, transport policy and social sciences of transportation. References nearly all include abstracts and are predominantly in English, though 30% of the ITRD records are in one of the French, German, and Spanish languages. The records are drawn from research reports, books, articles from journals and reviews, theses, standards, specifications, conference proceedings, and summaries of research in progress.
