Abstract : The purpose of this report is to provide information obtained from Soviet open source literature on organizations, facilities, and personalities of the Soviet bioastronautics and manned spaceflight programs. The majority of the 700-odd bibliographic entries listed at the end of the report consist of articles from Soviet scientific and technical periodicals. A large number of articles come from special collections, such as the 'Problems of Space Biology' series, published by the Academy of Sciences USSR, and 'Aviation and Space Medicine,' published jointly by the AllUnion Physiological Society of the USSR and the Academy of Medical Sciences USSR. In addition, the materials on which this report is based include papers presented by Soviet scientists at various international space meetings, such as the Congresses of the I.A.F. (international Astronautical Federation), COSPAR, and others. Newspaper articles, some from non-Soviet sources, make up a small minority of the references.
