The United States federal government is responsible for the largest percentage of the world’s report literature, much of which is processed and distributed by the National Technical Information Service (NTIS). Several widely-known U.S. report series should be mentioned:
AD: stands for Astia Document, originally a publication of the Armed Services Technical Information Agency, now used generally for Defense Department documents. AD reports are currently distributed by the National Technical Information Service, or NTIS.
PB: stands for Publications Board, now distributed by NTIS
N: an unclassified NASA report
DE: a Department of Energy report
There are several major print indexing, abstracting and announcing services, as well as bibliographic databases and full-text report collections online. United States government agencies are leaning increasingly towards full-text electronic publication of new reports.
