Understanding Air Quality: PurpleAir Empowers Community Science

The PurpleAir blog shares the scientific studies happening in our Community. We realize some research studies cover topics that have been politicized, so we want to share our editorial decision guidelines, as well as our goal of being a neutral source of peer-reviewed studies that utilize PurpleAir sensors.

Through our blog, we want to highlight studies and resources that feature air quality data from the PurpleAir Community. We want to maintain a solid scientific foundation using the best academic practices.

A study's findings and conclusions can lead to controversial or political topics. If these studies are peer-reviewed and utilize PurpleAir sensors, we believe sharing these studies with the Community increases awareness of air quality impacts through data-driven science and research. We aim to promote all relevant and well-earned knowledge, regardless of its socio-political implications. 

If you would like us to showcase a study or findings through your community project, please submit them through our contact link.
