Indoor air pollution adversely affects human health. People spend 80–90% of their time indoors in many parts of the world, and, often, the concentration of air pollutants is higher indoors than it is outdoors. Thus, the possible adverse health effects associated with air pollution can be dominated by indoor air pollution. Air pollutants can also cause material damage to equipment and artifacts, and contaminate manufacturing processes. We invite you to consider submitting your research for publication in this Special Issue of the journal, focusing on “Indoor Air Quality”. The aim of this Special Issue is to communicate a selection of papers on the current state of science and engineering on indoor air quality. Relevant current issues include biomass combustion in the developing world, Indoor particulate matter from cooking and heating, indoor chemistry, health effects of indoor air pollutants, microbiology and bioaerosols indoors, indoor volatile organic compounds, low-cost sensors for the indoor environment, energy efficiency impacts, and indoor air quality in green buildings.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
