With an emphasis on communist and developing countries, the digital edition of Joint Publications Research Service (JPRS) Reports, 1957-1995, contains social science, scientific, and technical materials translated from many languages. JPRS—acting as a unit within the Central Intelligence Agency—was established in March 1957 as part of the United States Department of Commerce’s Office of Technical Services, about six months before the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1. JPRS staffers prepared translations for use by U.S. government officials, various agencies, and the research and industrial communities.
