SAE International offers a scholarly journal that focuses on accident prevention and occupant protection—specifically accident reconstruction, injury investigation, intra-vehicle safety mechanisms, and mitigation related to human travel. The SAE International Journal of Transportation Safety encompasses basic research as well as issues of vehicle design and infrastructure. The publication provides a forum for scholarly works concerning all aspects of injury causation and mitigation associated with any transportation system. This includes safety mechanisms, impact, and injury response and tolerance on multiple scales, with the objective of developing restraint, vehicle, and infrastructure environments that are safer for the occupant, rider, passerby, and warfighter. Editor-in-chief of the Journal is Dr. Warren Hardy, an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech and Wake Forest universities. Two issues of the Journal will be published in 2013.
