Abstract

This paper investigates the collaboration patterns and research topic trends in the publications of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS (T-ITS) over the past decade. We find that coauthorship is prevalent and that the coauthorship networks possess the scale-free property on high degree nodes. Collaborations usually occur within the same research institutions and countries. Interorganization/region collaboration structures are usually connected through a few productive/high-impact authors. Typical international collaborations are between the U.S. and other countries such as China, Germany, U.K., and Italy. Active topics studied in IEEE T-ITS publications in the past ten years include traffic management and machine vision, among others. Authors can be partitioned into common interest groups, of which machine vision and automatic vehicle control attract more researchers.
