Indoor Air call for papers - Special issue: COVID-19 and indoor environment


Emerging infectious pathogens might have jumped from animals/birds to human, but many of these pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2 are transmitted indoors between people.
For the COVID-19 pandemic, the exact transmission routes are still not accurately defined. SARS-CoV-2 arrived in our new age of big data of traffic and travel, indoor positioning and environment, and rapid communication. This has provided an unprecedented opportunity to explore the dynamics of infection and transmission as affected by indoor environment, i.e. hospitals, homes, offices, shopping centers, train and plane cabins, restaurants, and subway stations where people live, work or socialize. Scientific knowledge is essential for guiding infection control.
Manuscripts (Original studies and Reviews) are invited but not limited to the following topics:
  • Behaviour and properties of bioaerosols containing the virus in buildings, including survival of the virus
  • Indoor transmission routes
  • Virus sampling with validation
  • Impact of indoor environment in major
  • Mathematical and statistical modelling of effects of indoor environment including human behaviour
  • Impact of COVID-19 intervention (masks, use of hand sanitizers etc) on IAQ, exposure and productivity
Deadline for submission: 31 December 2021

All submissions will be published immediately online after acceptance.
