Death Penalty Article Indexes

In the course of its research, DPIC collects relevant death penalty articles that have appeared in print and on media Web sites. Our collection certainly does not contain all such articles, nor do we claim that it represents the "best" articles. It is only a representative sample of the extensive coverage given to capital punishment in print in a particular year. For those interested in examining this coverage, we have prepared indexes of the articles in PDF format for 2004 to 2007, and an Excel spreadsheet for 2008. Note that we are not posting the actual text of the articles. The indexes alone are very long.

Due to the length of the index, we have listed the main categories below in alphabetical order for easy reference. Prior to 2008, the indexes is also arranged according to these categories and chronologically within each category. Each article’s entry prior to 2008 gives its source, date (year-month-day), author, title and the category of the main subject discussed, while the category is omitted in 2008. Some articles appear in more than one category. To go directly to the index, click the one of the links below.
