The purpose of this compendium of recent research in this themed issue is to heighten awareness of eye-tracking methodology and its application in tobacco regulatory science to advance knowledge of consumer understanding of the diversity of advertising, marketing, and other communications about tobacco products. Eye-tracking provides an objective and direct measure of attention that cannot be obtained through self-reported measures. The 7 papers selected for this special issue contribute to scientific knowledge and this editorial provides a synthesis to help guide readers and offer insights for future eye-tracking research. These elegantly designed studies apply eye-tracking methods to 3 major topics related to tobacco products: health warnings, advertising, and constituent information. The application of eye tracking methodology to tobacco regulatory science research has the potential to increase understanding of the impact of tobacco communication and marketing on consumers.

More about this publication?
  • Tobacco Regulatory Science (Electronic ISSN 2333-9748) is a rigorously peer-reviewed online scientific journal for the dissemination of research relevant to the regulation of tobacco products. The journal content includes a broad array of research domains, including chemistry, biology, behavior, community, and population-level surveillance and epidemiology, as well as knowledge syntheses (eg, meta-analyses or state-of-the-art reviews) and analytic modeling. All articles describe the policy relevance of the research outcomes. Given the global nature of tobacco regulation, particularly as a result of international and national policies, Tobacco Regulatory Science publishes high quality research that is relevant to global regulatory needs and requirements. Tobacco Regulatory Science is published electronically 6 times per year.
