Kieran Sharp
Chairman, REAAA Technical Committee

One of the major objectives of REAM is technology transfer, ensuring the results of new research and investigations are disseminated to members so that the benefits can be realised with minimum delay. The Road Engineering Association of Asia and Australia Journal aims to publish original work which assists in bringing new knowledge and insights to practitioners and decision-makers.

At its recent meeting in Hanoi, the REAAA Goveming Council endorsed the recommendation of theTechnical Committee that an Editorial Panel be created whose tasks will be to encourage members in their region to submit technical papers, and other suitable material, for publication in the Joumal, to assist in the reviewing process and to act as a conduit for the collation of other suitable material for publication.

The Editorial Panel seeks to publish material in several categories:

Refereed Papers

TechnicaI papers reporting the results of recent research and development. Manuscripts will be judged on their scholarly merit and relevance to the Journal's readership, initially by the Editoria Panel and then by at least two independent experts in the relevant field. Papers will also be subjected to editorial review to maintain style, consistency and clarity of English expression prior to publication.

Manuscripts submitted for consideration must conform to the following basic requirements:

  • Typed double-spaced on one side of the paper.
  • References cited using the Harvard (author, date) system, with the references listed in alphabetical order at the end of the paper.
  • All tables and copies of figures (including photographs), numbered sequentially in arabic numerals and with full captions, sources and notes, must be placed at the end of the paper; with the position of each table and figure clearly indicated in the text. Originals of illustrations need not be sent until requested by the Editor, and must then be in a form suitable for publication.
  • A face sheet is required, containing the following: Paper title, name(s) and affiliation(s) of the author(s), Full contact details (including fax number and e-mail address ofthe corresponding author and an abstract of 150-200 words.
  • Papers for review should be sent by e-mail, but should be followed by a faxed copy so that we can check equations, tables, etc.

lncomplete manuscripts not conforming to these requirements, or clearly requiring extensive editing, cannot be accepted for refereeing. Authors not having English as a first language are advised to seek advice from an appropriate reviewer before submitting their paper.

It is the authors' responsibility to guarantee the authenticity of their papers and articles and to obtain the necessary permission and authorisations for material and photographs. The Editor is not responsible for the opinions expressed by the contributors.

Unless notified by the author to the contrary, it will be assumed by the Editor that a submitted paper has not been published or offered elsewhere, and that the author holds full rights of publication. Papers previously published in a refereed journal or published conference proceedings will not normally be accepted (but see 'lnvited Papers').

Highly technical papers better suited to a limited audience through specialist academic journals are not encouraged. Essential technical and mathematical material should be included as an appendix rather than break the flow of the paper.

Manuscripts are judged on their scholarly merit and relevance to the Journal's readership, initially by the Editorial Panel and then by bt least two independent experts in the relevant field. Papers are also subiected to technical refereeing to maintain style consistency before publication.

Invited Papers

Papers previously presented at Conferences but not formally published, or otherwise not likely to receive widespread attention, may be considered for publication as 'lnvited Papers' if they meet the Journal purpose and general requirements for publication. These are not normally refereed, but may be edited in consultation with the author.  The Editorial Panel welcomes suggestions from readers and Conference organisers about papers that may be suitable, and invites authors to submit their own papers. Details of previous presentation should be made clear. Examples of invited papers' are those produced in this issue of the Journal.

Technical Notes

Technical Notes provide an opportunity for the dissemination of technical ideas, notes on processes, interim findings, and so on, which are not sufficiently developed or complete to warrant a full paper. the suggested maximum length is 1500 words. TechnicaI Notes are not refereed but may be edited.

Opinion and Letters

Letters to the Editor which present a point ofview on material previously published in the Journal, or on a matter of topical interest, are welcome.

Bulletin Board

Brief (100-750 word) and newsworthy items concerning recent project findings, events, innovations, personnel movements etc., with illustrations where appropriate, are welcome.

Reviews and New Publications

Publishers are invited to submit copies ofnew publicationsfor review and/ or announcement. Reviews from readers are welcome.


Details offorthcoming events in the region should be forwarded to the Editor. Allow for the fact that the Journal is published twice a year. Reports and commentaries on recent conferences are also invited.


All material for publication should be sent to the Editorial Assistant, ARRB Transport Research Ltd, 500 Burwood Highway, Vermont South, Victoria, Australia 3133 or by e-mail to:[email protected] Papers may also be sent to the local member of the Editorial Panel, who will pass on the material to ARRB on your behalf.
