The Tobacco Industry Tracking Database©
contains bibliographic citations, abstracts, and detailed indexing for
more than thirty thousand articles, news stories, and other materials
regarding the tobacco industry; clean indoor air campaigns; and other
tobacco policy issues. The scope of the coverage is mainly limited to
tobacco policy issues within the United States.
Documents in the database date back to the early 1960s, although the primary
focus of the collection is 1993 to present. The database is updated weekly.
Sources include newspapers, magazines, trade journals, internal tobacco
industry documents, and other related materials.
In February 2007, the ANR Foundation was fortunate
to be able to add several thousand records related to the science of secondhand
smoke, smokefree air, and youth tobacco issues to the Tobacco Industry
Tracking Database. These records do not contain the same level of indexing
- for example, there are no Named Persons or Named Organizations fields
in these additional records. We feel that these records add value to the
collection, even without the more detailed level of indexing.
