What is JPRS?

The United States Joint Publications Research Service is a government agency which translates foreign language books, newspapers, journals, unclassified foreign documents and research reports.  Approximately 80% of the documents translated are serial publications.  JPRS is the largest single producer of English language translations in the world.  More than 80,000 reports have been issued since 1957, and currently JPRS produces over 300,000 pages of translations per year.

            In its early years JPRS concentrated heavily on scientific and technical material from communist countries.  Gradually coverage has broadened to include more non-scientific materials.
