NJDOT’s Research Library Hosts Tool to Find Recent Transportation Research Publications

The NJDOT Research Library maintains a “Did You Know” page to share basic facts about the research library's operations, available transportation research resources, and newly issued publications.

Hot Topic Searches are available on the TRID Searches page

The NJDOT Research Library also has a "TRID Searches" page that contains a list of searches for recent publications indexed in the TRID database, based on 37 subject areas, covering all modes and disciplines of the transportation field.

Select "Hot Topic" searches are also maintained that list ongoing projects and publications issued in the last five years that are stored in the TRID Database.  These hot topics include:

  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
  • Planning & Safety
  • Resilience
  • Sustainability
  • Transformational Technologies
  • Workforce Recruitment and Retention

TRID (Transport Research International Documentation) is the world's largest and most comprehensive bibliographic resource on transportation research information. It combines the records from the Transportation Research Information Services (TRIS) database of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) and the Joint Transport Research Centre’s International Transport Research Documentation (ITRD) database of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

TRID helps researchers locate solutions to problems, avoid duplication of work, and save resources. It includes records of AASHTO publications, federal and state DOT reports, University Transportation Center (UTC) reports, and commercial journal literature, among other sources. It also satisfies the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requirements to consult TRB's TRIS databases to identify ongoing or previously completed research on a given topic.

To expand your search to projects, or for any other research questions, please contact Eric Schwarz, the NJDOT Research Librarian, at eric_cnslt.schwarz@dot.nj.gov or 609-963-1898.
