Distinguished Professor Richard Arnott of Economics has been appointed as an Associate Editor of the journal Transportation Research Part B. A journal that publishes on all methodological aspects of the subject, particularly those that require mathematical analysis, Transportation Research Part B's focus is on the design and analysis of transportation systems. The target audience for Part B is operations researchers, logisticians, economists, econometricians, mathematical modelers, transportation engineers, geographers, and planners. Part B is complementary to Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice, Part C: Emerging Technologies, and Part D: Transport and Environment. The complete set provides comprehensive coverage of current research in transportation science.

Professor Arnott received his SB in urban studies from MIT in 1969 and his PhD in economics from Yale in 1975. Prior to joining UCR in 2007, Arnott was on faculty at Queen's University, Canada, and Boston College. He has been a visiting faculty member at many universities, including Oxford, Stanford, Princeton, Canterbury (NZ), Melbourne, Ecole Normale Superieure (Paris) and Munich. Arnott's accomplishments include publishing over 100 articles, editing several books, and serving on over twenty editorial boards. His current research focuses on the economics of downtown parking and traffic congestion and on urban transportation/land use/environmental forecasting. He is also co-authoring a graduate urban economics textbook for Harvard University Press.
