Description / Abstract:

The Health and Environmental Sciences Department (HESD) of the American Petroleum Institute (API) sponsors petroleum health-related research in the areas of industrial hygiene and exposure assessment, toxicology, environmental biology, product safety, and community and occupational health. The reports and publications indexed and abstracted here are a compilation of research investigations/reviews conducted for API from 1959 through the end of 1994. For additional information including articles published in the peer-reviewed literature, on-line searching is recommended.

The Subject Index

The subject index of the 13th edition of Index and Abstracts of API Health-Related Research has been simplified to include a comprehensive list of key terms alphabetically arranged by "petroleum product of interest," "test conducted" or by "authors/organizations." The main headings in the subject index appear in bold. Subheadings appear in italics. Each study in the subject index is identified by its full title followed by a unique number (xx-xxxxx) in parentheses, which also identifies the study's abstract. Numbers are arranged numerically in the Abstracts Section.

Prepared by the staff of API's Central Abstracting & Information Service, abstracts include a "source" field providing the user with one of four descriptors on report availability. These include:

• API HESD Information Specialist;
