Special Issue "Indoor Environmental Quality"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Environmental Science and Engineering".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2018)
Collaborative research efforts towards understanding indoor environmental health risks and practical solutions for improving indoor environmental quality in buildings, while reducing cost, resource and energy consumption impacts can lead to advances in sustainable built environments. Related topics include, but are not limited to, environmental exposure and health risk assessment; assessment and modelling; indoor air quality; bioaerosols; dampness and mold growth; climate control; thermal comfort; ventilation; occupant perception, acceptance and response; economic impacts and policies; low-cost housing; and sustainable built environments. All research outcomes are intended to contribute to the development of best management practices in indoor and built environments for public and environmental health sciences. This Special Issue is open to any subject area relating to indoor environmental quality and health. Research papers, analytical reviews, case studies, conceptual frameworks, and policy-relevant articles are welcome.Assoc. Prof. Ling Tim Wong
