Special Issue Information
Since Constantin Yaglou’s work on ventilation to control thermal and odor comfort in the indoor environments in the 1930s, exposures to numerous indoor pollutants including tobacco smoke, asbestos fibers, radon, lead paint, biological agents, and particulate matters have been recognized. In 2003, American Journal of Public Health published a special issue on Built Environment and Health that reemphasized importance of the impact of the built environment on public health and recognized it as an emerging field. Since the publication of the special issue, there has been much deeper understanding of importance of the indoor environments where people living in modern society spend most of their time.
The MDPI open access Journal, ‘Buildings’, is planning a special issue on ‘Advances in the Indoor Environments and Respiratory Health’ to publish high-quality articles. The special issue welcomes any original research or review articles related to respiratory health effects (such as asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, pulmonary sarcoidosis, and other respiratory illnesses) of exposures to particulate matters, chemicals, biological agents, physical parameters (noise, temperature, humidity); exposure assessment of those indoor stressors; effective management and engineering controls of the pollutants; and effects of exposure intervention in the indoor environments including homes, schools, vehicles, public buildings, and commercial buildings such as offices, hospitals, nursing homes, and shopping malls. Research articles on the effects of climate change on the indoor environments and respiratory health are also welcomed.
