Einstein Papers Project

The Einstein Archives Online Website provides the first online access to Albert Einstein’s scientific and non-scientific manuscripts held by the Albert Einstein Archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, constituting the material record of one of the most influential intellects in the modern era. It also enables access to the Einstein Archive Database, a comprehensive source of information on all items in the Albert Einstein Archives.

Embryo Project

The Embryo Project helps identify and understand the agents of change shaping embryo research and its multiple contexts. We started from the historical recognition that science involves a mix of contingencies influenced by (1) particular actors working in particular places, (2) decisions about what organisms to study, equipment to use, experiments to design, and other technical factors that make possible scientific practices, and (3) the multiple social and cultural contextual factors that shape what is possible in science.

eSciDoc

eSciDoc is an e-research infrastructure, developed in a joint project of the Max Planck Society and FIZ Karlsruhe, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and aiming at building an e-research platform for multi-disciplinary research organizations.

Henslow Letters Project

The Henslow Letters Project is a digital project that emerged during the process of compiling and transcribing Charles Darwin's letters in the Darwin Correspondence Project. John Stevens Henslow (1796–1861) taught Charles Darwin and worked in the fields of botany and mineralogy. In order to access a sample of Henslow's full correspondences, the Darwin Correspondence Project can be currently queried to list those letters exchanged between Darwin and Henslow.

Isis Current Bibliography of History of Science

The Isis Bibliography of the History of Science is a publication of the History of Science Society. It is a secondary source bibliography of recent works in the history of science from around the world, covering all fields, time periods, regions, and languages. The editor of the Bibliography, Stephen Weldon, is currently developing a project that he calls the Isis Document Indexing Platform. This project will consolidate the bibliographical data gathered over the past century into a single, open access resource.

Joseph Hooker Project

The project will focus on Joseph Dalton Hooker (1817–1911), in particular his correspondence with colleagues in India, including at the Kolkata botanical gardens. The transcription of the correspondence will complement several resources which are already in the public domain – including the Himalayan Journals (1854) and the Introduction to the Flora Indica (1855) and the sections of Hooker's herbarium which have been digitised. It will also run alongside the ongoing collaborations around the Wallich materials by Kew, the Natural History Museum, and the British Library.

Newton Project

The Newton Project, based at the University of Sussex, seeks to create an Open Access digital edition of all of Sir Isaac Newton’s (1642–1727) writings. The searchable TEI-P5 transcriptions include his personal, theological, scientific, mathematical and administrative papers, as well as his correspondence; the alchemical papers are being published online to the same standards by the Chymistry of Isaac Newton Project at Indiana University. The transcriptions include both formal work that was printed, and all of Newton's unpublished personal writings.

Old Weather Project

The Old Weather project seeks to "recover worldwide weather observations to help improve climate model predictions." Toward that goal, the Old Weather project relies on the power of "citizen science" crowd sourcing to transcribe historical weather patters recorded in logbooks by sailors on research vessels from the 19th and 20th century.
