The International Journal of Traffic and Transportation Management (JTTM) is a high-quality scientific journal devoted to fields of Water and Environmental Sciences. It aims to provide a highly readable and valuable addition to the literature which will serve as an indispensable reference tool for years to come. The coverage of the journal includes all new theoretical and experimental findings in the fields of water and environmental sciences or closely related fields. The journal also encourages the submission of critical review articles covering advances in recent research of such fields as well as technical notes.

INTRODUCTION

The Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board are very committed to build the Journal as one of the leading international journals in water and environmental sciences in the next few years. With the support of the International Association for Sharing Knowledge and Sustainability (IASKS), it is expected that a heavy resource to be channelled into the Journal to establish its international reputation. The Journal’s reputation will be enhanced from arrangements with several organizers of international conferences in publishing selected best papers of the conference proceedings. The journal is planning to publish 4 issues per year.
