Princeton University Press Partners with Tizra to Take Einstein Papers Online
From the Tizra Blog:
Princeton University Press has selected Tizra as the digital publishing platform it will use to make The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein available online. One of the most ambitious publishing ventures ever undertaken in the documentation of the history of science, The Collected Papers will ultimately comprise more than 14,000 papers selected from all phases of Einstein’s career and fill nearly 30 volumes.
The online version hosted by Tizra will provide easy, searchable access to the full archive, and will offer features including:
- Powerful, bilingual search, with page-specific search results.
- Links between German text and corresponding English translations.
- Persistent, page-specific URLs to facilitate citation, referencing and discussion.
- Easy online viewing in all common web browsers, including those on the most popular mobile devices.
The Collected Papers provides the first complete picture of a massive written legacy that ranges from Einstein’s first work on the special and general theories of relativity and the origins of quantum theory, to expressions of his profound concern with civil liberties, education, Zionism, pacifism, and disarmament.
