Mobility in History

The Yearbook of the International Association for the History of Transport, Traffic and Mobility

Information for Authors

Manuscript Submission

Review essays in the T2M Yearbook, Mobility in History, are intended to serve readers who wish to acquaint themselves with the recent scholarly discoveries and debates in (historical) mobility studies. Contributions to the Yearbook are peer reviewed by at least two referees. Due to the short time window between two T2M conferences, the deadlines for submission and revision, as well as for refereeing, are quite strict.

Authors are asked to forego the objective, encyclopedic approach in favor of a fair but argumentative approach, whereby the reviewer engages with the work reviewed and uses the review to support an overall thesis about the state of the sub-field. As a T2M publication, the Yearbook is also interested in articles that define mobility broadly: examining vehicles, to be sure, but extending also to the systems in which they figure, including their social components. T2M is a society of mobility historians who share the view that their field includes, but is not limited to, the history of vehicles and other transport artifacts. Mobility researchers relate traffic and transport to larger social realms, and for this reason reviewers are asked to relate the transport historiography they review to larger social themes, and, where appropriate, even to review relevant work that is not specifically about transport or traffic. The Yearbook is not for internal use. It is an outreach publication to non-members, and authors do not need to be a member.
