Transfers Magazine is the biannual research publication of the Pacific Southwest Region University Transportation Center (PSR), a federally-funded network of eight partner campuses in Arizona, California, and Hawaii. The magazine publishes digital issues in the spring and fall, featuring condensed, accessible versions of peer-reviewed research articles previously released in academic journals. Articles cover a wide range of transportation topics and are written by faculty, staff, and students from the PSR campuses and around the region. Transfers also features a year-round blog, The Circulator, covering campus stories, research updates, student projects, news, events, opinion, and much more. UCLA professor Donald Shoup (the former editor of ACCESS Magazine) serves as senior editor for Transfers, and the magazine is staffed by an editorial team at UCLA and guided by an editorial board of the directors of the PSR research centers.
