It is also active as a publisher and releases approximately 900 new titles in multiple languages per year. In total, more than 4,000 titles are currently in print: approximately 2,100 titles in English and the remaining titles in the other five official languages of the UN: Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish. A number of UN publications are widely popular or are of particular importance because topics are covered with a worldwide scope or because they supply global situation reports and data. With respect to journals published by the UN, the United Nations Chronicle, the Law of the Sea Bulletin, CEPAL Review and the Monthly Bulletin of Statistics are among the more popular titles.
