About the book
The disinfection of enveloped and non-enveloped viruses on hard and porous surfaces, liquid suspensions, and indoor air or aerosols is to be addressed. Articles will be solicited from experts in the field. The book is envisioned as a compilation of previously unpublished empirical data on viral disinfection methods and their efficacy. Review articles discussing existing data will also be entertained, as well as articles pertaining to mechanisms of viral inactivation or to comparisons between efficacy for different virus families.
While the data are expected to be obtained primarily from in vitro studies, in vivo data will also be considered. Data obtained using standardized methods (ASTM, EN, etc.) are preferred. If standardized methods are not used, the methods section of the article will need to be sufficiently detailed that others can reproduce and interpret the results presented. Data specific to SARS-CoV-2 or its surrogate coronaviruses is preferred, although data for other viruses will be accepted.
