Einstein Papers Project
The Einstein Papers Project was established in 1986 to assemble, preserve, translate, and publish papers selected from the literary estate of Albert Einstein (more than forty thousand documents) and from other collections (more than fifteen thousand Einstein-related documents).
Sponsored by the Princeton University Press and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem since its inception, the project was located at Boston University until 2000. The project is also supported by endowments from individuals and universities, the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
- The Series: The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein.
In the first two decades of the Einstein Papers Project, the Princeton University Press has published ten of the projected twenty five volumes in the series, The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein.
Introductions, headnotes, footnotes, etc., are provided in English, while all documents in the series are reproduced in the language in which they were originally written. The Press simultaneously publishes English translations of previously untranslated documents when it releases each volume in the series.
- The Early Years: 1879-1902 is the first volume in the series.
- The Swiss Years: 1900-1914 and The Berlin Years: 1914-1920 follow thus far (2007) in two parallel and extensively cross-referenced branches:
- Writings: published and previously unpublished articles, lecture notes, research notes, accounts of his lectures, speeches, interviews, book reviews, etc.
- Correspondence: letters, travel diaries, calendars, documents about Einstein by third parties, etc.
