Objective.-To test the hypothesis that symposia on environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) are more likely to present unbalanced data and be authored by tobacco industry-affiliated individuals than journal articles on ETS.
To compare the publication records and affiliations of authors of symposia with the authors of scientific consensus documents on ETS.
Design.-Content analysis of articles; computerized literature searches of English-language publications (except for one symposium) supplemented with additional sources.
All 297 symposium articles on ETS and a random sample of 100 journal articles on ETS published between January 1, 1965, and March 31, 1993;
the 1986 Surgeon General's report on ETS;
and the 1986 National Research Council's report on ETS.
