Special Issue: Lighting Research Methods

The LEUKOS Special Issue on Lighting Research Methods, is now available online and is open access thanks to joint sponsorship by CIE and IES.  This issue covers aspects of lighting research, including human factors in lighting research, suggestions about judging the scientific quality of lighting research, measuring lighting conditions for non-image forming aspects, measuring static and ambulatory light exposure, characterizing color discrimination, the use of category ratings in lighting research, determination of sample size, the use of VR for lighting research, and the language of lighting.
