Aims & Scope

The Journal of the Korean Society for Railway (JKSR) launched in 1997 aims to provide a platform to exchange research information, establish and pioneer railway-related academia, and present research results that are both practical and unique. The journal covers various research results, derived from theory and experiments, on topics related to railways such as railway policy and management, railway facilities, carriage machinery, electrical signals, and track engineering. It includes research outcomes that can contribute directly to the improvement of railway technologies as well as innovative studies on fundamental areas that can be applied to railways including mechanics, electricity, civil engineering, logistics, management and so on. The themes addressed by the journal include, but not limited to the following:

  • Rolling stock & Mechanical systems (materials, fracture, non-destructive testing, mechanics of materials and structures, design, dynamics and control, noise and vibration, heat and fluid mechanics, energy and power engineering, system engineering, reliability, maintenance, safety, etc.),
  • Power & Signal systems (power engineering and systems, electrical devices, circuits and systems, materials and devices, control and measurement, automation, signal processing, electrical and information communication, reliability, maintenance, safety, etc.),
  • Civil engineering for railway (structural engineering, material engineering, dynamics, seismic engineering, geotechnical engineering, measurement, geodetic survey, mapping, GIS, construction, architectural and environmental engineering, transportation engineering, etc.),
  • Transportation policy & Operation (railway traffic planning and engineering, railway management policy, railway technology policy, railway logistics, railway operation, railway information system, railway culture, etc.).
