The sixteen families of q-series containing the Ramanujan functions were listed by I.J. Zucker (SIAM J. Math. Anal. 10:192-206, 1979), which are generated from the Fourier series expansions of the Jacobian elliptic functions or some of their squares. This paper discusses algebraic independence properties for these q-series. We determine all the sets of q-series such that, at each algebraic point, the values of the q-series in the set are algebraically independent over ℚ. We also present several algebraic relations over ℚ for two or three of these q-series.
