Ventilation and Indoor Air Quality, 2nd Volume
At present, air quality has a direct and wide impact on society. The role of indoor contaminants and viruses in the context of human health and user comfort has become more relevant since the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020 to protect the health and well-being of the public. This problem has constantly been growing since the 1980s and grew exponentially during the current COVID-19 crisis. Therefore, the focus of this Topic is on factors impacting indoor air quality (IAQ). Papers involving the monitoring, analysis, modelling, regulations, and technology used to overcome indoor air quality challenges and improve the understanding of IAQ are invited for publication in this issue. The submitted papers will be published in Atmosphere, Architecture, Buildings, Sustainability, and IJERPH.
Poor indoor air quality is an influencing factor of sick building syndrome (SBS), reduces the productivity of office workers, impacts sleep quality and public health and impairs learning, among other unintended consequences for indoor environments. Viruses have put fuel on the fire. Phenomena related to the transmission of viruses in the indoor environment are key to understanding the mechanisms of reducing the probability of infection. This topic aims to provide the readers with a comprehensive understanding of state-of-the-art reviews, recent developments that enhance the understanding of the IAQ impacts, and up-to-date case studies focusing on understanding the factors influencing the levels of air contaminants and viruses, applying novel monitoring technologies and modelling techniques.
This topic invites authors to submit papers that capitalise on science, technology, and public perception associated with indoor air quality, contaminants, and viruses. The editorial team encourages prospective authors to provide a detailed description of their methodology and procedures. Published papers may include, but are not limited to, data collection, modelling, literature reviews, and technology development.
The editorial team of this topic on the “Ventilation and Indoor Air Quality, 2nd Volume” invites you to submit papers across the broader spectrum of science, engineering, public health, and learning (e.g., standards development, emission rates, IAQ and ventilation measurement and modelling, contaminant control, viruses, IAQ control, risk, life-cycle assessment, data analysis, databases, technology, and online learning). Interdisciplinary and international collaborations are encouraged for this topic.
