Each month we publish a newsletter titled IAQ Website of the Month. The excerpt below was originally published in the August 2011 newsletter.
Last month I shared the four publications that I faithfully read each month:
- ASHRAE Journal
- Indoor Air Journal (bi-monthly)
- IE Connections
- The Synergist
Of these, I get most excited when the Indoor Air Journal shows up every other month. A subscription to the Indoor Air Journal is provided to members of the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ). ISIAQ has traditionally been an organization comprised of international researchers, but there is a growing interest from practitioners who actually apply the research to IAQ field work.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Indoor Air Journal, they are giving free access to a few commemorative articles on their website. It’s very rare to get free articles from this journal, so this month I’m featuring the 5 commemorative articles:
- Ventilation rates and health: multidisciplinary review of the scientific literature
- Chemistry in indoor environments: 20 years of research
- Reflections on the state of research: indoor environmental quality
- Indoor Air: the first 10 years
- Modern indoor climate research in Denmark from 1962 to the early 1990s: an eyewitness report
I recommend downloading and reading the first three articles at a minimum. Not only do these articles give you a historical perspective, they also provide readers with the current state of the art.
If you’re a member of ISIAQ, you get free access to 20 years of wonderful articles. If you’re not a member, you can still search articles and read abstracts by visiting the Journal’s main webpage.
