The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein

Preparation for publication of Volumes 11, 12, and 13 of The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein and expansion of The Einstein Archives Online website. (36 months)

We seek support for editorial research and publication of 3 volumes of the Collected Papers of Albert Einstein and for the refinement and expansion of our www.alberteinstein.info website that presents 900 Einstein manuscripts and a database of the Einstein Archive. The project will carry out research for the period 1921-1923. A Cumulative Index Volume 11 will be published in print and on our website. The expanded electronic resources will include revised and expanded access to more than 70,000 archival holdings from which the edition proceeds and an authoritative Einstein bibliography. We will prepare the infrastructure for the expansion of web-available Einstein documents. Volumes 12 and 13 will contain significant previously unknown and unpublished writings and correspondence for an important period in Einstein's life and work: e.g. his research on a unified field theory, on superconductivity, trips and lectures in Japan and Palestine, and his involvement in the League of Nations.
