Abstract : The present listing of Mainland Chinese organizations engaged in scientific, technical, or industrial research was compiled as a byproduct of STEP Information System abstracting programs. The listing is not to be considered comprehensive, as individual entries represent materials selected for STEP processing which yielded an organizational association of the author. Standard reference materials were used for rounding out the institutes of the academies of sciences and the Mainland China government ministries. The purpose of this listing has been to provide a guide to abstracters in the STEP program particularly with regard to standardizing the translated names of organizations. To this end a checklist of 40 recurring phrases found in the majority of entries is provided, with a translation considered appropriate for most entries in which they occur. To facilitate computer storage and retrieval, an alphabetical code is assigned to each organization. Each code is found directly below the romanized title.
