Digital Einstein Letters Reveal Advice to Marie Curie
Princeton Univ. has launched The Digital Einstein Papers, a unique, authoritative resource that provides full public access to the translated and annotated writings of Albert Einstein.
“Princeton Univ. Press has a long history of publishing books by and about Albert Einstein, including the incredible work found in The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein,” said Peter Dougherty, director of Princeton University Press. “We are delighted to make these texts openly available to a global audience of researchers, scientists, historians, and students keen to learn more about Albert Einstein. This project not only furthers the mission of the press to publish works that contribute to discussions that have the power to change our world, but also illustrates our commitment to pursuing excellence in all forms of publishing—print and digital.”
The Digital Einstein Papers website presents the complete contents of The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein, and, upon its launch, the website will contain 5,000 documents covering the first 44 years of Einstein’s life, up to and including the award of the Nobel Prize in Physics and his long voyage to the Far East. Additional material will be available on the website approximately eighteen months after the print publication of new volumes of The Collected Papers. Eventually, the website will provide access to all of Einstein’s writings and correspondence, accompanied by scholarly annotation and apparatus.
