The Einstein Papers Project is a long-term editorial project devoted to publishing the Collected Papers of Albert Einstein (CPAE). The first volume was published by Princeton University Press in 1987 [CPAE1], followed by eight more volumes to date [CPAE2j-[ CPAE9j. To complete the series, some twenty more volumes are anticipated during the next 30-40 years. The documentary edition of the CPAE is supplemented by an English translation series. In addition to these publications in b09k format, the project has launched a website jointly with the Albert Einstein Archives of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Known as Einstein Archives Online ( the site presently provides over 3,000 high-quality facsimiles from Einstein's autograph writings, a finding-aid to the Albert Einstein Archives, and an itemized database of some 43,000 records.
