The database is the result of a study evaluating past research focus and trends on vacuum insulation panels (VIPs), with an emphasis on environmental and economic studies for building applications. Altogether 423 research documents are amassed in the database. In addition to publication information (publication type, author list, article and source title, DOI/URL and abstract), the database contains specific information regarding the research focus. The database splits documents in the groups: • PRODUCT – documents focused on basic VIP research or fundamental research regarding their elements (core materials, barrier envelope, etc.). • BUILDING – documents related to research on VIPs in the context of building applications. • OTHER – documents researching VIPs in applications unrelated to buildings (e.g., cold chain, thermal energy storage, etc.). The BUILDING group enables to filter the documents based on the studied building application and research topic, while the OTHER group enables filtering based on the research focus (e.g. refrigerator application). Finally, all documents researching VIPs' environmental and economic impact in the context of building applications are listed separately.
